My 7 year old dd got bit by a spider while we were camping. I kept an eye on it and on Monday it wasn't better, but worse. I took her to get it looked at. They ended up needing to lance it and pack it with an antibiotic gauze. Tested her for MRSA, and it came back positive. She's been on antibiotics for 8 days and it looks really good. She had the gauze taken out and the dr. said it looks great.
Anyway, my mom was making me feel horrible about it. Like i don't care for my kids properly. She said its going to always affect her and blah blah...
Has anyone had a child get this infection? Have you had anymore problems since then? I don't know much other than her dr. telling me everyone has it on their skin and is just a matter of it getting into an open wound.
Ugh....I feel like shit.
