Staph Infection . Could it be the reason ?

Hi Doc! I was daigonised of staph infection and some antibiotics and injection were prescribed for me for 7 days, after which I went back to the lab for screening. This time the result was negative. To my greatest surprise, few weeks later i started noticing the symtoms again. What could be the reason for this? Least I forget, my spouse did not undergo the treatment with me. Could it be the reason? Please I need to know. Thank you. PETER.

Hi Peter, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You haven't mentioned, where exactly do you have the Infection? Is it a abscess or something else? What exactly are your Symptoms? There are chances the Infection could spread from Person to Person. Kindly get yourself examined by a Physician and get a Blood Culture done to rule out the causative Organism. Once Diagnosed, you Doctor will Prescribe you antibiotics accordingly. You will have to take them as directed by Your Doctor and go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health.
