Staph Infections: If you had included the name of the antibiotic you were on this would be easier. Many ers are not treating humans like there is the dangerous drug resistant staph epidemic and are under treating with ineffective antibiotics. If you are not improving i would contact your family doctor and ask if they have experience with mrsa, the drug resistant form of staph.
