itchy scalp and mrsa

My daughter and I have just been diagnosed with mrsa. Before I started to get treated and since I have finished the meds I have had a really itchy scalp and what feels like allot of small bites! We have just moved to a new provance so I thought I was getting bit by some type of bug, but then it went away when I started to get treated for the mrsa and now that I'm done meds its back? This also happens along with fevers, headaches, stomache aches, general itching (mostly scalp, torso, and legs), fatigue and what feels like the start of a bladder infection that comes and goes but has not become a bladder infection. Does anyone else get theese symptons? Does it mean that the medication did not get rid of the mrsa? Any info would be appreciated! Thanx sheri

to get rid of mrsa you may need to be on antibiotics and probiotics for a year.

eat right to build immune system and keep body ph right

I have been having an itching scalp with bumps. I went to my regular doctor and he told me to get a shampoo called Nixoral. It didn't work so I went to my dermatologist and he gave me a prescription for Tetracycline for 8 weeks. I have never taken an antibiotic for that long, but he didn't say it was MRSA. I have been taking it for over a week and there is no improvment.

Jay, sounds like MRSA to me. Go to your regular Dr. and ask him to test you for MRSA. Let us know what you find out. If it is MRSA you need to know right away.

I have had an itchy scalp,sometimes with red bumps,for more than a year. I have been on
antibiotics for 3 months,mixocycline 50 mg.When I tried to stop it after 2 months,the itch
came back. I have been to 5 dermatologists( 1 in Mexico,who diagnosed follitculitis
caused by a bacteria) and 2 in Montana and 2 in Tucson. No one said MRSA,but it that
what I could have? Maybe I need to up the dose or try a different antibiotic?

My daughter had two major operations in 5 weeks and during the 6th week she came down with a bad case of MRSA. She had a port inserted and is now recovering well. I am 75 and a diabetic. Several bumps overnight appeared on my arm. Also for a week a number of places on my scalp have itched like heck and on the back of the scalp I have a sore spot. Seeing my regular internist today. Will follow up.

My GP told me that it was moreoeless pointless to treat mrsa unless you had some other serious illness?? I had pneumonia, lung abcesses and pleural fluid, along with dvt only 3 months before??!! My sputum was wretchedly green and i was gettin night sweats and fever?

Mate i had to pester the life out of him. He said, its basically everywhere and there is no guarantee if you treat it, that it wont come back immediately or a few months down the line

I done antibiotics and that blue coloured washy shampoo bollox. It worked, but a few months later i had it again for the 3rd time. Is he right?

No he's wrong!IF THEY ARENT TESTING DOCTORS/NURSES ETC. WHAT THE HELL IS THE POINT I ASK? IM SO ANGRY TO FIND THIS OUT. IT JUST COSTS TOO MUCH APPARENTLY. THEY DONT CARE IF WE ALL DIE FROM COMPLICATIONS

Best bet is to go to the GP & get the rash swabbed , it could be just an allergy .

I have have been diagnosed with MRSA in the bloodstream, nose and on a sore. For some time, my scalp has continuously itched. I get lumps on my scalp which break open and ooze and I loose circles of hair from the areas. My doctors refuse to say that this scalp condition is related to MRSA. What test would I need to confirm a diagnosis and how can the condition be erradicated.
