So about a month and a half ago, I got an infection in my arm I saw my family dr. and she put me on meds for it. She said it was just folliculitous. (which is a bacterial infection caused by staph that surrounds you hair follicle) It started to get really bad about three weeks ago so I had to have my arm drained. Well, Tuesday night, I noticed a spot on my arm and overnight it got huge. I went and saw my dr. today and the infection is back!! I am on MORE medication, my dr. said the cultures were not MRSA, but it isnt responding to the amoxicillin. Has anyone had to deal with a recurring infection? Anyone have or had folliculitus? Is there anything I can do from preventing it?
