My sister had her second child in July and this time its a girl. I just went to visit her and she has these boil-like bumps all over her. She has multiple scars frimt hem and they keep popping up.

I read in one of the postings about this and they said that staph is highly contagious. I was there a week ago and I don't have anything on me and she has two children who don't have the marks either and she lives with our parents who don't have anything on them. What else could it be?

  • Sounds like MRSA to me. If she didn't have it prior to her delivery I'd look at hospital acquired MRSA. She needs to see her doctor

  • Why has she not been to see a Dr. to look at this?

  • My guess is an allergic reaction. What does her doctor say?

  • they need to do a nasal swab for mrsa confirmation

  • They need to do more testing until they figure it out. If they rule out all the bad possibilities, then they might attribute it to hormone fluctuations.

  • It could also be PPPS. It doesn't always stop as soon as you give birth.
