Re: I am so scared I was diagnosed with MRSA
DEEP BREATH...My friend had MRSA. He developed this lump on the back of his neck.
It IS highly contagious, this I do know. They took a little bit of fluid from the lump to get the diagnoses. The good news is that it did NOT spread and it is now gone. PLEASE DO Follow-up with someone that knows a LOT about MRSA and someone that will answer all of your questions and someone that will put your fears to rest. MRSA can be very dangerous if not treated. The anit-biotics are very important and if this is not gone after you take them, that will mean that you need more treatment.
I DO know that they can treat this and it can go away. But again, you must watch this closely and IF YOU DO NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE with your doctor, get a second opinion.
This is about YOU, so it may be easy for them to be nonchalent, (sp?) but your feelings and fears need to be addressed so that you feel okay. Don't read too much on the internet. This will only upset you more and of course we always read about the WORSE case scenerio, and that does NOT always happen.
