Where is the infection (arm, leg, etc)?
Why I think it's MRSA, staph or something else
The left side of my face was hurting and I thought I had a pimple. A few days later I noticed my face was swollen like one of the Whos from Whoville.
How it happened
I went to the doctor when the swelling started and he gave me augmentin. It didn't do a thing. I went back two days later (the first picture) and he sent me to a specialist. They gave me a shot of Rocephin and it got a lot better.
What I'd Do Differently
- I might go to the doctor earlier next time. The doctor thought I might have gotten the infection after visiting my dad in the hospital. Maybe I'll wash my hands like I'm obsessed next time I go to a hospital.
