See your doctor about an attempt at decolonization with Bactroban Nasal ointment, hibiclens soap shower and shampoo and possibly one of several antibiotics that obtain high nasal secretion levels such as minocycline, septra, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or rifampin.

Gas produces different toxins resulting in symptoms such as fever, malaise, very red skin, and low blood pressure. Both these infections must be treated aggressively, with penicillin remaining the drug of choice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
