Repetitive staph infections my 17 month old.. HELP!
My 17 month old daughter has had 5-6 MRSA infections back-to-back for several months, since she was about 9-10 months old. She just got another staph infection 2 days ago & she's on the Bactrium now. She's been seen by 6 different doctors & they have all said pretty much the same old story! They have all put her on Bactrium (6ml for 10 days) & Bactorban cream that goes up her nose twice ( 2x day for 10 days) & it cured it, but it ALWAYS has come back! I clean EVERYTHING! My house is not dirty. Her doctor says that its living on her skin? But if that was the case my husband and I would have already gotten it, but we haven't? She's always have had the boils on the butt, but now this time its on her hip?!? She also has had a swollen neck lymph node, just on her left side, for months now!! And I had just noticed today both of her lymph nodes by her groin area are also swollen?? I am getting extremely frustrated and worried that something may be wrong with her. My questions are: Should I take her to a dermatologist? should I have tests run on her to make sure she doesn't have some type of disease causing this? should I get another opinion? I am keeping her clean (probably too clean). She gets a bath every night and I wash her hands several times a day. I am so concerned over this. She has been on an antibiotics again now for approx. 2 days......the boils are healing again....only to come back again a few months from now I am sure....HELP!!! Please give me some insight and direction for this......Any information will be greatly appreciated!!!!!
