Skin infections/cellulitis

Recommended Posts

My daughter has had quite a few of these for the past years. From scratching a mosquito bite /or a wasp bite. We've always been puzzled because DS14, DH and I have never had one and my daughter has had 3-4 in the past 2 years.

 

My husband had cellulitis in his leg recently (unknown origin). Would this point to a flare in my daughter over the past few weeks? He took a round of antibiotics. I was told that strep or staph causes these infections.

I'm sorry that I can't answer your exact question, but here was our experience. Our son is a wrestler and had small red spots on every hair follicle around his abdomen, groin and low back. We tried antibacterial creams, antifungal creams, and antimicrobial soap. Nothing helped.

 

Finally, he took treatment dose of Keflex for sinus infection and the skin infection went away! I think the common bacteria that is ever present on our skin can cause some of the skin infections. I think this was making him flare for months.
