What are the symptoms of staph infection?

Hi! I pray that this is legit. I had a septoplasty (RT nasal psg) 2 years ago. Now I have constant blockage on this RT nasal side- then they found fungus on my RT eardrum. ENT peeled it off ...NEW ENT peels it off and I feel better for maybe one day. It grows back. Then I was dx w/ a very serious staph infection in sinus cavity. Now I am sick all the time ! NONE of the (ENT & Infectious Disease) doctors know what to do. I was put on Diflucan for 10 days solid. NO change! I requested the anti-fungal "purple dye"- ENT never called me back- nor does he have explanation why my RT nasal inner passage has a fluid-most likely blood- lump inside at very top. It bleeds a lot and now a huge blood clot came out after a 10 minute nose bleed. I am soooo sick of this and the unprofessional care! Is there anyone out there who can help me!! Thank you sooo much for reading this. Sherry

Thank you for your contact to healthcare magic.
I understand your health concern, if I am your doctor I suggest you that both the infection should be treated simultaneously to get rid of the both infection. It is also kept in mind that Staphylococcus may be a MRSA that is Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus. So screening test diagnosing MRSA must be carried out first, because MRSA strain are very resistant to routinely prescribed antibiotic and special antibiotics are required to treat such a infection. Once you treated for both infection you will be out of infection soon.

I will be happy to answer all your future concern.
Thank you,
