My Doc. Put me on Antibiotics, that is all that happend. I don't know what strain I have. Its on my stomach, I clean 2-3 times a day WITH GLOVES and Cover it with Gauze, a big piece & Tape it to my stomach. Also I wear a tank top with my pants over the tank so it wont show and stays away from everything & then I put on a regular shirt too over it. Now I have Sanitized my house from top to bottom with bleach & water and with Lysol Disinfectant while my son stayed with my sister & mother. I read that I have to change my sheets everyday, I have sit on 1 spot of my couch, and spray that down or sit on a sheet, everything I touch I have to sanitize, I have to disinfect everything, I understand the sharing of towels...my son has his and mine go straight down stairs...we have never shared towels. I also read that I cant use hand towels to dry my hands I have to use paper towels. Can I give it to people even though my hands are clean & it is covered? Can I relax a little or do I have to spray every time I touch a door or a light switch? How do I know its gone? I was told my results over the phone and not much else. I read that it is very contagious....so I have decided to sit at home for Christmas & stay away from every1. It freaked me out so bad I am afraid to hold my son. My husband is afraid to kiss me. So How much of what I read is true & How far do I go? Can I hold my son, he sleeps with me every now & then can he do that or is everything true that I read? HELP ME PLEASE I AM FREAKING OUT!!! My sore looks good & its been scabbing up as of last night the scab ripped off with my gauze. So its now trying to heal again. I want to go to Christmas but not at the risk of giving it to other people. I just want to Cuddle my son again and kiss him. I havn't done those things in a days I am so scared.
