I am pretty much 100 percent sure that I have Staph infection and would like second opinion and get on treatment asap?

Vaginal staph infection, given erythromycin, are these the right treatment? Thanks

Vaginal staph infection, given erythromycin, are these the right treatment? Thanks

Change Doctor: I would advise a change in physicians. Anyone still treating patients with Erythromycin for any infection does not have the best interest of the patient at heart. Erythromycin, because it has so many intolerable side effects, is not a good treatment in general. And, Erythromycin does not treat the common forms of staph that are plaguing our societies. More effective antibiotics are available. ...Read more

Can staph infection be confused with hsv2 on a lab test? I have recently been contracting what the doctors say are "boils", in my pelvic area, buttocks, under my arms and even on my nose in some instances. They say it's a form of stapholycoccus and treat

The: The short answer here is you need to be tested for herpes. In addition, if you get a "boil" have a herpes culture done on the actual lesion.
As far as your boyfriend is concerned, he may have tested positive for hsv 2, however it is possible that he never had a lesion before. He was likely exposed to it at some point in his life.
Take care. ...Read more
