I am really sorry for not answering, had a double hernia op which went wrong and after posting this was taken back into hospital to fix.
Have attached a photo, thank you for trying to help
Wow that must be the fastest response ever!!
Now i am very concerned! As I believe folliculitis is caused by staphylococcus aureus.
My concern here is that I went into hospital for a hernia operation, the recovery should have been 3-5 days. This rash appeared about 3 days after the operation. After 5 days I had not recovered and seem to be going backwards in terms of abdominal pain etc, I have seen doctor today who prescribed painkillers and anti-biotics as he believes I have an surgery infection.
This rash has gradually been disapearing, it appeared about 21 feb, and is still showing now slightly and raised etc.
Is it possible the two are linked?
ok thank you for this, one last thing..
So position is...
If it is the same bug and its just SA the rash will be an indicator because the anti-biotics im on should clear both up, and I will be able to see this visually.
If the rash does not clear up it could be MRSA?
Or could be two totally different bugs causing the issues.
