Staph infection, could this be a recurrence?


Several years ago I had a staph infection from wrestling, I took antibiotics and it went away.

A couple weeks ago I contracted it again on my chin and neck when some people from Brazil came in to wrestle with us (one of them had staph, but was nice enough to knowingly pass it along).

I went to the doctor, was given 1 week of antibiotics and some topical cream and it went away, last week was my last time taking it.

So I began to wrestle again Monday, and felt this awkward feeling down my throat, I thought maybe I was vomiting (out of shape because I had been gone for two weeks) and maybe food got stuck. Yesterday, same thing happened, and when I started drinking water, I was feeling something down my throat.

Could this be a recurrence of staph that has internalized and is in my body?
