I recently stayed at a (…) hotel and was attacked by bed bugs. I have pictures of the mattresses. It took a month for the bites to heal and Shortly after I contracted staph infections all over my body. I just left the hospital and they gave me (flagyl) metronidazole 500 mg, and Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim 400 mg / 80 mg. And Valacyclovir hydrochloride 1 gram. I have staph and mrsa in my nose and ears. Staph Bois on my legs buttocks and all over my scalp. I’m freaking out what do I do. Should I go get a second opinion or are my antibiotics effective
The antibiotics that you have been prescribed are potent and effective enough to care of the infection. I do not think that you need a second opinion on that. You can additionally get your blood check for any derangements in blood counts,sugar and kidney function tests.
THESE ANTIBIOTICS ARE EFFECTIVE BUT THE ANTIVIRAL VALACYCLOVIR DOESNT MAKE ANY SENSE FOR A BACTERIAL INFECTION. IF YOU ARE NOT RESPONDING TO THESE ANTIBIOTICS,THEN IT WOULD BE BETTER TO SHIFT ON INTRAVENOUS ANTIBIOTICS FOR FASTER RESULTS. APPLICATION OF LOCAL CREAMS CAN HELP
the bites have got secondarily infected. actually this should not have happened if proper medicines and proper care was taken. i suggest you should go for a second opinion for sure.And you should do it as early as possible
