Had a large staph infection under my chin that went up along my jaw up to my ear. Over time forms a hard cyst that is painful and causes my ears to ring. Have been using bactroban for over ten years. Infection has gone down but only if I pierce it and let it drain. Any thoughts

Hi Howard, thanks for the question. Since this is staph infection, you need to work closely with your doctor on which antibiotics to use. If the infection is internal, you will need oral or injection antibiotics. Since staph is known to develop resistance, your doctor will prescribe an antibiotic that is effective.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
