Really irritates me....
I thought they were keeping certain Antibiotics
to fight Superbugs like MRCA ????
So why don't "they" give them to Randy ????

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacterium responsible for difficult-to-treat infections in humans. It may also be referred to as multiple-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ORSA). MRSA is by definition a strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is resistant to a large group of antibiotics called the beta-lactams, which include the penicillins and the cephalosporins. Wiki

The bacteria mutates rapidly and becomes even more resistant to more and more antibiotics. As we use antibiotics more often for viruses and use so many antibacterial products instead of soap and water, we deminish the ability of the medicines available. And, we become more susceptible to super bacteria.

Hi everyone & thanks for the lovely posts Didn't end up in the hospital, they just gave me, yet another antibiotic. Number 18, I think Thanks for giving a good explanation of MRSA, Cindy. Who knows where my case came from, I was not in hospital so either they underdosed my original staff infection & it mutated or it was MRSA in the first place. It's been 20 months since the first rash & I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Keep your eyes peeled for infected rashes, its out in the community & if it gets out of hand it can kill you. Take care all

Randy, it's so good to see your post!

Our library homeless guy (who has become a friend) Jerry is 69 and ended up in the hospital about a month ago with MRSA. He's slowly improving at an extended care facility, but also has emphysema from decades of smoking. About five years ago, I had a bad case of cellulitis, so I can only imagine what you are going through. I've learned to wash my hands often and thoroughly, and to watch for skin injuries that don't heal.

You have my prayers and best wishes.

Being on the Island Randy, you probably know all about the
diverse uses of TEA TREE OIL. I use that every time I get a
cut or graze anywhere because it's so soothing - as well as
being an non-prescription antibiotic. And it heals any kind
of wound - FAST
Only STINKS when you first put it on....

Cudgie, I am assuming that your are talking about athlete's foot when you said cellulitis. I got hospitalized at Great Lakes Naval hospital twice for that infection. They had a large purple pill that you had to crush and pour into hot water and soak.
I had to do this eight to ten times a day and it worked. The drawback was it worked like a dye and you had purple feet for awhile.

Cellulitis is a nasty condition too. i was hospitalized several times with it between 2000 and 2006 until i finally dropped over 250 pounds and got my diabetes under control.

copied from

Predisposing conditions for cellulitis include insect bite, blistering, animal bite, tattoos, pruritic skin rash, recent surgery, athlete's foot, dry skin, eczema, injecting drugs (especially subcutaneous or intramuscular injection or where an attempted IV injection "misses" or blows the vein); plus burns and boils, though there is debate as to whether minor foot lesions contribute and also morbidly obese people can experience it. Diabetics are more susceptible to cellulitis than the general population because of impairment of the immune system; they are especially prone to cellulitis in the feet because the disease causes impairment of blood circulation in the legs leading to foot ulcers. Poor control of blood glucose levels allows bacteria to grow more rapidly in the affected tissue and facilitates rapid progression if the infection enters the bloodstream. Neural degeneration in diabetes means these ulcers may not be painful and thus often become infected.

Randy, i know how frustrating it is. you have an awesome spirit and attitude. i will continue to pray for a successful treatment and healing.

No, Liam. The cellulitis I had was a skin infection that started at a cut on my knee. My entire leg eventually swelled up, and I was on IVs for 8 weeks, two of them in the hospital. The hospital meals were great, especially the chicken and the puddings, but I was glad to get home and have my own visiting nurse. I had about five elderly roommates that came and went during my hospital stay. One of them had a heavy Italian accent and was very hard of hearing. She refused to drink the Boost that her doctor had ordered. It turned out she thought he had ordered "booze" for her.
