I had very severe swelling in my scrotum with very bad pain all over my body.I was seen by a urologist and sent to hospital for surgery.Turn out to be staph infection.I was given several days of antibiotics by IV and an open wound to heal from inside out.
About six weeks later a abcess come up on the left cheek of my butt very painfull. It required out patient surgery,open wound and was also staph infection.Ten more days of antibiotics and I thought I was healed,wrong.Today,Sunday May 25,I sit here with swelling on my upper right leg,just under my scrotum,with the same symptoms of the two previous.
The Doctors have never said anything about MRSA just said staph infection.Just wanted to see what the folks on this board might think.Thanks,Donnie

You might have to be on antibiotics for up to a year. Build your immune system, take probiotics.

Went to Dr. today due to my third staph infection,in three months,this time on my upper right leg just under my scrotum.Got a 500 mg shot of Kefzol,put me on twice a day Bactrim DS tablets for six weeks,and scheduled a CT scan of my pelvic area.
Ask him if he thought it might be mrsa,he said it was staph but not mrsa because it responded to antibiotics when I was in the hospital.I guess my question is why does it keep coming back?
My immune system was good up until now,I am hardly every sick,never had surgery up until this staph came along.I am 54 yrs.old, quit drinking and smoking a year ago, eat right and take vitamins.The thing that keeps me going now through all this now is the grace of God.
I will let y'all know how it all turns out.Thanks and Good health to all,Donnie

My boyfriend had a small bump on his scrotum last week. He tried squeezing it
a little but nothing came out of it so he left it alone cause he said it was really
sore. A day or two later his scrotum swelled up the size of a softball. I took him
to the hospital and they diagnosed him with epididymisis, which is swelling of
the scrotum. We came home, and the next day we went to another hospital
and he had to end up having surgery. Just like you, they cut his scrotum and
drained it and packed it with gauze. They didn't tell him anything about mrsa or
staff. Three days after him having surgery they were changing his gauze and
had found a piece of gauze that had been in his scrotum since the night he had
surgery. After finding that, the next day they came and told him that he had
mrsa. My opinion, he caught mrsa from the piece of gauze that was left in
there. He was in the hospital for six days, but mrsa wasn't mentioned until the
fourth day of being there. What do you think of the situation.

Amy -

He might check with a lawyer about whether there are grounds there for a lawsuit there.

The whole thing might have been avoided had he known about garlic water baths. Had he soaked in a garlic water bath immediately upon discovering the bump, in my opinion, it might have gone away without all the swelling and subsequent problems.

A side issue is that using garlic to treat infections is something people must learn about on their own and do for themselves because it is not an FDA-approved treatment protocol so doctors cannot recommend it despite the fact that it works. Special interests keep it and other herbal/folk medicine remedies from being approved.
People just have to take it upon themselves to learn about them and treat themselves. That's why I am here helping people learn about these things so they can help themselves.

There are many garlic threads in this forum to help people learn about the many ways to use garlic to fight staph infections.

Good luck to you and your boyfriend.
