I am having rash on arm, chest and shoulders, skin redness or irritation and skin rash (episodic itchiness, uniform tiny bumps, skin colored mostly). A nurse said it was allergic reaction & gave me centraben cream. Can allergy last more than a week?
Yes: If you are exposed to the item to which you are allergic, the symptoms will persist, even for years. It would be prudent to consult your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Son has Red bump on chest hurts and hot to the touch my mom popped it and said pus came out im getting over mrsa..could he have contracted mrsa???
Possible: The concern isn't so much that your son has MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus), but that he has a significant skin infection. MRSA has increased in incidence significantly, though is quite treatable in cases like this. Just as serious would be a strep or MSSA (methicillin sensitive...) infection.
