I had very severe swelling in my scrotum with very bad pain all over my body.I was seen by a urologist and sent to hospital for surgery.Turn out to be staph infection.I was given several days of antibiotics by IV and an open wound to heal from inside out.
About six weeks later a abcess come up on the left cheek of my butt very painfull. It required out patient surgery,open wound and was also staph infection.Ten more days of antibiotics and I thought I was healed,wrong.Today,Sunday May 25,I sit here with swelling on my upper right leg,just under my scrotum,with the same symptoms of the two previous.
The Doctors have never said anything about MRSA just said staph infection.Just wanted to see what the folks on this board might think.Thanks,Donnie

You might have to be on antibiotics for up to a year. Build your immune system, take probiotics.

Went to Dr. today due to my third staph infection,in three months,this time on my upper right leg just under my scrotum.Got a 500 mg shot of Kefzol,put me on twice a day Bactrim DS tablets for six weeks,and scheduled a CT scan of my pelvic area.
Ask him if he thought it might be mrsa,he said it was staph but not mrsa because it responded to antibiotics when I was in the hospital.I guess my question is why does it keep coming back?
My immune system was good up until now,I am hardly every sick,never had surgery up until this staph came along.I am 54 yrs.old, quit drinking and smoking a year ago, eat right and take vitamins.The thing that keeps me going now through all this now is the grace of God.
I will let y'all know how it all turns out.Thanks and Good health to all,Donnie

My boyfriend had a small bump on his scrotum last week. He tried squeezing it
a little but nothing came out of it so he left it alone cause he said it was really
sore. A day or two later his scrotum swelled up the size of a softball. I took him
to the hospital and they diagnosed him with epididymisis, which is swelling of
the scrotum. We came home, and the next day we went to another hospital
and he had to end up having surgery. Just like you, they cut his scrotum and
drained it and packed it with gauze. They didn't tell him anything about mrsa or
staff. Three days after him having surgery they were changing his gauze and
had found a piece of gauze that had been in his scrotum since the night he had
surgery. After finding that, the next day they came and told him that he had
mrsa. My opinion, he caught mrsa from the piece of gauze that was left in
there. He was in the hospital for six days, but mrsa wasn't mentioned until the
fourth day of being there. What do you think of the situation.

Amy -

He might check with a lawyer about whether there are grounds there for a lawsuit there.

The whole thing might have been avoided had he known about garlic water baths. Had he soaked in a garlic water bath immediately upon discovering the bump, in my opinion, it might have gone away without all the swelling and subsequent problems.

A side issue is that using garlic to treat infections is something people must learn about on their own and do for themselves because it is not an FDA-approved treatment protocol so doctors cannot recommend it despite the fact that it works. Special interests keep it and other herbal/folk medicine remedies from being approved.
People just have to take it upon themselves to learn about them and treat themselves. That's why I am here helping people learn about these things so they can help themselves.

There are many garlic threads in this forum to help people learn about the many ways to use garlic to fight staph infections.

Good luck to you and your boyfriend.

Go back one page to the titles page and search for the words garlic water in titles and it will provide you with a list of threads about how to use garlic water to fight MRSA.
Hope this helps.

I found a lump the size of golf ball in the scrotum. Went to the ER. They treated with IV
antibiotics.Sent me home. They put me on 2 antibiotics.After three days I was worse.
Went back to the ER, they admitted me.And within 48hours scheduled me for
surgery.When the pathology came back it was MRSA. I went on a seven day course of
Clindamycin. I am doing better now. When the doctor told me it was MRSA it scared me.

I had an ear infection that cleared up after topical and oral antibiotic. Soon after I
felt a bump just below ear lobe near back of jaw followed by 3 more across face.
Diagnosed as MRSA, another bout of antibiotics cleared that up though I can still
feel the cysts. Over the last few days three cysts rapidly grown in scrotum, very
painful, now approaching 1.5" approx diameter. Doc saw them today, said "no big
deal" everyone has MRSA on their skin, he said and I quote " you can have sex
with your wife" prescribed oral doxycycline and take long hot baths.
I don't think this is going to work.

Hello Michael T. -

You are witnessing antibiotic resistance first hand. Bacteria are mutating different receptors and antibiotics cannot bond with them and so are becoming less effective. In time, they will become completely useless and if the pharmaceutical industry does not come up with something soon, epidemics will kill millions just as they did before penicillin.

Some alternative herbal folk remedies still work but the FDA doesn't approve of them so doctors cannot recommend them. They work anyway but you have to find out about them and experiment with them on your own. One such folk remedy is garlic water baths using natural garlic. You might read the garlic success stories thread in this forum to see what people wrote about their experiences. If you find that interesting, read my garlic and garlic water posts in this forum and you will understand.

Good luck to you and may you enjoy an enhanced sense of well being soon.

In addition to Mr. Anderson's advice you should concentrate your efforts on boosting your immune system and only take antibiotics when absolutely necessary. I can't say what has worked for others but for myself, so far,what seems to be working for me is:

Daily (one pill unless otherwise noted):
500mg Turmeric Extract with biotin (pepper)
Garlic Extract 5000mcg enteric coated
1000mg vitamin C
2500mg fish oil
Olive Leaf Extract 750mg (once every 3 days)

Homemade master tonic 2 ounces twice daily
Probiotic drinks: Kefir water, Kefir Milk (daily)
Homemade sauerkraut (a few times a week)
Greek yogurt and add blueberries (daily)

Inhale crushed garlic (allicin) a few times a week
Use crushed garlic water on my body and allow to absorb into skin once or twice a week.

Antiobiotics destroy good gut flora (bacteria) along with bad bacteria so overuse lowers the body's natural immune system. Bolster your immune system, take garlic baths and you may substantially reduce MRSA related outbreaks. MRSA can become dormant so IMO it's best to stay on a regiment that is working to reduce or eliminate outbreaks.
