I have been suffering from a chronic internal infection for some time. Recently it has become quite severe. However, I had not been able to get doctors to take me seriously, until -

Just recently I developed a large number of boils, with puss running out of them. Boils are very painful. A sample of the pus was tested, and it turned out to be golden staph.

The boils are healing up.

Since the doctor does not believe I had an infection to begin with, I am concerned, that when the boils have healed, the doctor will say the infection is gone.

Is there any way to diagnose an internal golden staph infection, when there are no external symptoms that the doctor can see?
