Did they culture it to see which it is? It could be staph or strep - or MRSA!

LOL Well people health is something I used to do, plus I'm a mom. If it can happen to a body it's happened to mine or one of my kids. I was an EMT in Alaska and my husband is a paramedic I'm insanely curious and interested in health and studied for a while to become a Physician Assistant. The program left our area (Sitka, Alaska) and I haven't pursued it since becoming a full-time mom...I was also a CNA while living in Alaska (certified nurses aide).

As for animals - same thing in a way, and also the rescue has taught me a lot. I look up stuff all the time, due to the dogs we get in and the myriads of illnesses or injuries they have and can get.

UPDATE,
so my hand is so much better. Been almost a week since the infection was spreading throughout my hand/arm and the infection is gone. The burn that turned into a huge round circle is still red, but no seeping or drainage. I suspect it will scar and stay round and red looking for awhile, but much better than losing my hand.
It is still cleaned and wrapped daily, I wear a glove at work to keep bandage dry. Still taking 3000 mg of Keflex daily. Hmm, don't think I could get sick right now if I was injected with a germ. lol.
Anyway, thanks for everyones care and concern. Going to be extra careful cooking for the holidays, don't ever want this to happen again.
