    Self harm that left me with MRSA

    I have self harmed since I was a sixth grader. I am now 18. In 2014 I scratched my arms till the point of sores. After they healed I started getting painful bumps all over my body near any sore or injury. Now they happen no matter what. I have gone to doctors and they said it was a simple abcess and gave me antibiotics. Last week I had gone to my general practitioner and approached him yet again...

    I was diagnosed with MRSA a few months ago.  I was shocked and really not sure what to do.  I did some research on it but there really isn't much info which is very frustrating.  I was put on antibiotics for 2 months to take care of the initial infection.  I was hoping that would be the end of it but since no one really explained it to me and I wasn't able to find much info about it, I didn't...

    It never seems to go away...

    I've had MRSA since I was in 3rd grade and for the past 8 years it has just taken over my life. I'm just so sick and tired of absolutely nothing working. I'm tired of the endless amounts of antibiotics that I slowly become more and more resistant to, I'm tired of the constant loss of self confidence, all the trips to the doctor and all the times where I feel more and more like I've had enough....

  • I am waiting on test results but the doctor already lanced the thing under my arm and put me on antibiotics for a month, yesterday.  He said I have MRSA.  The more I read about it, the more terrified I get.  I am now having hives, probably due to the antibiotics, and of course it is the weekend.  I may have to go to the hostpital tomorrow because I can't tell if it is more MRSA, Hives, or...

    Recently Diagnosed with MRSA

    I was recently diagnosed with MRSA about two weeks ago now. I am having trouble coping with it and I have no idea how I contracted it. The hardest part about it is that my boyfriend of almost 3 years doesn't know if he can still be with me anymore. He is in fear that he will somehow contract this from me. I am only 21 and just starting college. My MRSA may never go away and that's what scares me....

    I keep getting these spots.. Mostly on my scalp... My dr. thinks it's staph but since I keep getting them I'm thinking MRSA? They always start as little bumps and turn into sometimes HUGE welps that drain. Sometimes just scabs but they stick around FOREVER! I mean YEARS. I also have had abssesses drained from my abdomen during emergency surgery where they thought it was an ovarian cyst the size...

    Hi everyone!!! My name is Devin and I am a MRSA survivor. I had back surgery in Feb 2015 and a week and a half later I ended up finding out that I had MRSA abscess close to my spine. I then spent several months in a nursing home not being treated the right way, and the doctor I went did not treat me properly. She just gave me more pain meds and nerve pain meds. I went into acute kidney failure...
