Ouchie! Glad you are getting the right meds now. I get staph infections a lot. My Dr. says my body acts "allergic" to certain staph bacteria that are normally found on human skin (not dangerous stuff like MRSA) but for some reason my body wigs out about it. Often I get staph infections just from a little pimple. When I had the dog bite I had to pull out the stitches early, not because the *bite* was infected (it was fine) but my body was waging war on the stitches. I hate taking antibiotics but sometimes it's the only solution. Luckily mine have all been treatable before needing IVs.
