No discharge, no known medical illness, no fever. She had a stomach virus two weeks ago, but recovered quickly.
Ok thank you. Is it normal for something likethis to stick around for a bit?
Dear Rozee,I am happy to answer your follow up question.
Yes,due to irritation,this can cause inflammation & hence it becomes reddish.It is best if he can cover while showering.Usually it is completely cured by topical antibiotic ointment like ointment ultramide or ointment polysporin.
But oral antibiotic may be prescribed if the symptoms persists after applying this ointment.
Cleanliness and good hygiene are the best way to protect against getting & from spreading staph infections.She can prevent spreading it to other parts of your body by being careful not to touch the infected skin, keeping it covered, and using a towel only once when she clean the area.
Hope this helped My main motive is your satisfaction.If you still have any questions in mind,please feel free to ask.
