However about a week later i got really ichy and was scrathing my arm through my sweat shirt when i took offhe doct my sweatshirt there was a giant sore and then i looked at the rest of my body and they were everywhere again. The doctor refilled my prescription, i went the ten days again everything cleared awayn. Now it has been about a week and a half and yesterday my nose started to itch and hurt and today i have sores all over my body again. I'm wondering if since the infection originated from my nose is it not healing as fast because the nose is damp and warm inside, is it because it's in blood, or is it because i drank one night on the antibiotics?
Hi, hope you are better by now!
Our doctor recommends washing with hibiclens and putting bactroban in the noses of everyone in the house for five days (I have seen a week recommended also) as well as washing all clothes, sheets, towels, etc in hot water and drying them in the dryer.
Not only do you have to completely clear the infection but you have to rid your environment of it if you can ...
