I have an infection on my lower legs I think that started from cat scratches about a year ago. Blisters appear then bust with liquid and crust over and the skin is red. I'm not diabetic and I'm about 60lbs overweight. I've seen a Dr before and was given a ointment that was something like Murpurcin or close to it and it seemed to help but I lost it and I'm tired of this but am not going to the Dr and would like to know if any of the antibiotics I have (I prep) on hand will work.. Keflex 500mgs, Bactrim DS, Levaquin 500mgs, Clindamycin, Amoxicillin 250mgs, a couple 1000mg Azithromycin, Omnicef 600mgs and some vials of Rocephin 2 grams each and a big bottle of Bicillin. My next buys are gonna be Doxy 100mgs, Cipro 500mgs and Flagyl 200mgs but I guess it was even pointless to say that lol. Thanks
This is weird !
I would have a culture done by a dermatologist...
Even if you had one it may have changed over the past year.
- It could be a secondary infection and entirely unrelated to the initial funding.
- If it's a new organism, the culture will tell you which one in your stash is the BEST one to use.
-Make sure you check all the meds you have found for the expiration date.
They are not as long as the majority of other meds.
Good luck to you. It must be miserable!
By the way, was it your cat?
If you know the cat and still have trouble, you may want to take the cat to the vet to be checked. Wear long pants if dealing with this critter. Lol
I understand the humor really I do. If we can't laugh and make fun of ourselves & our awkward sometimes difficult lives then major depression will set in.
However,. you have had this cut for over a year and it hasn't gotten better by way of ointment.
Why haven't you taken a more serious approach?
Rashes and abrasions are for ointments. This is more serious.
I would either see a dermatologist or be rechecked buy a general physician and get a new antibiotic.
If you don't get a new antibiotic the infection will continue to blister. If that happens it could get into your bloodstream. That you definitely don't want to happen!
Please get it looked at before the cut has a second birthday!
