Staph Infection and Itchy Skin Bumps

by Rosemary
(New Orleans, Louisiana)

Finally coming back on with maybe a solution to some peoples problems. After a year and a half and tons of pills, ointments, and lotion, the itching has subsided tremendously. Most of the raised bumps are gone. I did go to the allergist and they found nothing. I continue to go to the Dermatologist and finally got a biospy and they found I have had a staph infection this entire time. I still take the antihistamine Hydroxyzine once a day 3 pills 25mg to help with the itching. I am treating the raised bumps with Mupirocin. At night I was prescribed Cordran Tape to put on the areas and it has reduced the bumps to almost like they were never there. Now the skin is still marked up from all the scratching but its only temporary until the pigment goes back to its natural color. I hope this helps someone out to give you some relief.

Hey Rosemary, were you told you had eczema? I have had the worse rash all over my back, forearms and legs for the last 6 months to the point of bleeding, no sleep, etc. I have been on all the drugs you can think of. What were some of the other signs you had that might help me? Thanks
