R/O MRSA: MRSA IS A VERY AGGRESSIVE TYPE OF SKIN INFECTION. If he has it he is very sick right now and on very strong oral or IV ABS. IF THAT IS THE CASE, YOU NEED A NASAL CULTURE FOR MRSA TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT A CARRIER.& you need to be treated with nasal Bactroban . You need to see a doctor get an exam a&discuss options.
