Comment from Albert, Male 35

This time he scratched the skin where the infection had appeared and soon it started showing symptoms of staph infection.
The most common symptoms were pus, itching, redness, blistering, skin sloughing and pain. Albert had one single Cephalexin course for ten days and then he even had Doxycycline for a period of eight days. It seemed to be improving but it again re-appeared after four weeks by taking a break of about two to three weeks. At present, Albert is on the second Cephalexin course and the infection is found to be improving but it has not gone completely.

Comment from Chris, Male 28
Chris had staph infections regulalrly for a period of five years after he went through a sinus surgery. One of the staph infections resulted in hospitalization. In 2004, Chris had a fall and he was not unable to stand either. He was admitted to the hospitals where doctors were unable to find anything even after having an x-ray. A week passed and Chris was still not improving and his stomach was distended and he had to return to the emergency room. The doctors did a test and found that it was MRSA. After several other tests, it was found that he had a 4×6 mass in his chest cavity and it was something that was causing a lot of pain in his backbone that appeared to be as hard as a boil. Chris was on IV therapy for a period of twelve weeks and since then he has been having various kinds of issues of the health.
