Wow. : Wow. This one is a stumper! your doctor is doing the right thing by doing a biopsy of the lesion to help with the diagnosis. Apparently, he/she thought it was a staph infection and treated you with Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) which can cover community acquired staph infection. When that didn't work, a biopsy was done. It shouldn't take 2 weeks to get results. Typically, it takes about 7 days. But the biopsy may only show non-specific inflammatory findings and you may still not have a definitive diagnosis. The last patient i saw with scattered painful nodules they had a disseminated bacterial infection with gonorrhea. Endocarditis should be considered in the differential and is diagnosed with serial blood cultures. This would be particularly important to do if you get more lesions or if you have systemic symptoms like chills or fever. You are a very interesting patient and i hope an answer to your problem is found promptly. ...Read more
