Thanks for your query at HCM!
I am Infectious Disease Specialist! I went through your query!


As you mentioned the HIV, TPHA and VDRL tests were negative then you are unlikely to have these diseases. You need not worry.
As for your infection and your occupation you are definitely at risk of having resistant microbes causing infection such as MRSA or ESBL.
Was the growth heavy on plating?Counts?
You have to apply topical ointment like mupirocin and antibitics like clindamycin or teicoplanin to combat infection.
I suggest you must get an antibiotic sensitivity testing done and start treatment based on the results.
You must maintain good hygiene of your perineal area.
