Working in an emergency dept, last November, I became MRSA
+, diagnosed March this year. Despite vancomycin, it didn't clear. Sores are all over both legs, groin, and back, shoulders, arms.
Infection control did fortnightly tests, but always "not clear". 2 months ago, I received "all clear". However, after two months of no improvement, I checked with my GP. The test results that I was told were clear, stated heavy growth.
Infection control said "all clear" meant all clear for work, not MRSA free. I am not in a clinical role, they said it had been an error for them to be monitoring at all. They also sent me all the pathology accounts.
My GP is at a loss as to how to proceed. I boil wash clothes, sheets, towels. My hygiene routine is impeccable. But no sores are healing.
I have researched online, but I cannot find anything else I can do. I know the risks of remaining untreated, but no one seems to know of a treatment.
Please can you advise?
