My daughter got Staph, and we found out that it was MRSA, so....you should definitely get that checked out as far as that goes.

Did you ever try the antibiotic wash that comes in a teal bottle. Also when you were doing the antibiotic in the nose where you also putting it under the finger nails?

We've had some staff around too but not to the extend to send us to the hospital. It's a tough thing because not many things can kill it and it lives naturally on the skin most of the time. I got a antiseptic antibacterial spray for cuts and hand sanitizer is handy too. My pediatrician prescribed a cream for our staff on the skin because the oral stuff gives my son diarrhea. It is a hard thing, but not much can be done besides just dealing with it when it comes. Just make sure it isn't MRSA. That can be more serious.
