Quoting Dutchmaster:" Not sure, but if they keep giving her Bactrim and it keeps coming back she'll eventually have Bactrim resistant MRSA..."No smurf that is what I was thinking, the NP said it would be fine. I was like this is the third time she has had bactrim for this couldn't it become resistant to that, she said it was "highly unlikely"
Quoting whitney ♥ ainsley:" Colonization vs Infection The distinction between staph (including MRSA) colonization and infection ... [snip!] ... Infection requires treatment - various treatment options exist. Treatment does not always require the use of an antibiotic."I know that, but she didn't have a cut on her ass crack or anything.
Quoting [JadeLee]:" I know that, but she didn't have a cut on her ass crack or anything."
Quoting martinez♥:" She probably has MRSA colonized on her. As far as normal... yes and no. It is common for MRSA to colonize ... [snip!] ... I know that when it's colonized on the skin it needs to be treated appropriately but not sure how. Hope that helped some lol."There is so much my school books don't answer about MRSA though. Like WTF "WHY MY KID!?" lol.
Quoting martinez♥:" It doesn't have to be a cut. It could be a small break in the skin, such as from scratching. The injury ... [snip!] ... would develop a Bactrim resistant strain of antibiotics. Antibiotic resistance occurs when people use antibiotics incorrectly."Yeah I knew that but I am just a worry wart when it comes to my own child all the knowledge I have takes a vacation lol.
Quoting [JadeLee]:" There is so much my school books don't answer about MRSA though. Like WTF "WHY MY KID!?" lol. Hopefully ... [snip!] ... tomorrow. Then again I have to fight her through her baths and sometimes all I can do is a quick wash while she is thrashing."
Quoting martinez♥:" Yeah it totally sucks. :/ Another thing I found that helps sometimes is putting a banana peel under ... [snip!] ... had a TON of these smurfers and I've only had to have 3 lanced, but they left massive scars so I avoid it at all costs. :/"Yeah, I would rather a doc hurt my baby though. Her pedi actually showed me how to do it, no pressing down just in toward the center from each direction.. I did it to myself easy, and it hurts. It doesn't have a head yet which scares me like how big is this thing going to get.
