Suggest treatment for staph infection

I have a rare staph infection (sensitive to penicillin, which I am allergic to). I have been on other meds for 2 months and it won't go away. In the mean time, my blood tests have been crazy. My MCV is 104.6, MCH 36.1 and I have reactive lymphocytes in my blood. Other blood levels are elevated and some are low. My WBC is 6.4 and my RBC is 3.67. Any idea what is going on?

thanks for posting your query to HCM.
As I understand you are worried about your blood report .I am not getting any finding related to your infection in this report .
I wanterd to know how did you know that you are having Staphylococcus infection, which specimen you have tested .
If you have diagnosed with Staph infection you need to take antibiotic as per your sensitivity reoprt .Further if you are allergic to penicillin you can take Erythromycin, Clindamycin ,ceprofloxacin etc as per your sensitivity report under the guidence of your clinician .
