Where is the infection (arm, leg, etc)?
My head.....On the right front part of my forehead right on the hair line.
Why I think it's MRSA, staph or something else
The 3rd doctor said so. And I got better
How it happened
Hit my head on cabinet. Had a small scratch did not think it was even worth talking about the cut was so tiny. Then 2 weeks later I swelled up. Went to my doctor he said it was allergies. The next day both eyes swelled shut my head was HUGE went to E.R. I was told the same thing again allergies. Then on the 3rd day I drove 2 hours to another hospital I had not gotten any better. I was there not even 15mins and I was told it was mrsa. I was treated given antibiotics and ointment for infected area and for the inside of nose to be safe my doctor said. I healed quickly and returned to wrok 32days later grrrrr! I found a new doctor and have started to do things differently.
What I'd Do Differently
- Be my own best advocate. I will always get a 2nd opinion and if by chance I have to go to E.R it will be a 2 hour drive.
