Response to greatauntoftriplets (Original post)

Sat Dec 7, 2019, 04:12 AM

21. I had it about 10 yrs ago and was hospitalized for about one week.

It started with what I thought was a rash in my armpit.
Primary doc sent me to a breast surgeon; I guess she was afraid of lymph nodes or something.

Breast surgeon took my vitals and sent me directly to hospital - it seems my blood pressure or something was extremely low, though I wasn't aware of that problem.
I was treated with an antibiotic intravenously; at one point they wanted in insert a Pic-something directly into my body/chest, and I resisted; said I would check out of hospital before that was done. (My veins in arm are heard to find and I think they just wanted to make it easier on themselves.)
I was released after about one week, and have not had a recurrence that I am aware of, though I have some kind of outbreak on each of my lower legs, which I am treating with tea tree oil and a cream, just to clear it up. - I have no reason to think it's MRSA.

I was in my young 70's when MRSA occurred.
