More Intense Condition Than Just a Boil?
Last summer I had a boil come up and tried taking care of it at home. I ended up in a Urgent Care facility and then 3 days later referred to the Emergency Room because the infection was so bad. They had tried to lance it unsuccessfully. I was set up for an emergency procedure in which they went 6 1/2 inches into by buttocks. I was given a 10 day supply of antibiotics and that was it. I began noticing a rash and when school started back I went to the clinic-I do not have a regular doctor, which is why I waited to go to the clinic. I was told I had a staph infection on my skin and again given the antibiotics. I had been noticing small bumps that I thought were possibly the same thing but they dicipated. I now have one on my leg and one on my thigh and one along my underwear line. I got the Tumeric 450 mg capusles and started taking them on the 26th. The boils on my leg have come up since then. When I was in the Urgent Care the doctor told me they had seen over 50 cases similar to mine since the first of the year. They did not know why I had this except "people sometimes get boils". Any suggestions on what to do? I am taking the Tumeric 2 capsules 3 times a day starting today since I have the information. I also found out that the hospital here has a big problem with this and no one seems to acknoledge anything. What does the MRSA stand for and is it a more intense condition than just a boil? PLEASE educate me.
