I am hoping there might be a qualified person to help me follow the right path for getting treatment for my husband. He entered the hospital with a grapefruit size skin infection on his thigh. It took six days to get this large. It has a lesion in the center of the area. It was lanced and cleaned by urgent care on the second day. He has been given five different antibiotics. Two of them were intravenous IV after being admitted into the hospital. Since in the hospital he has tested positive for MRSA from a nasal swab and the preliminary results for Lyme have come back positive as well. I really do not think this looks anything like the pictures I have seen of lyme. He has had a different doctor everyday in the hospital they are now treating him with docycicline but his leg is continuing to swell tonight. He also has a lump in his lower abdomen. I would guess this is a gland or lymph node? I am not sure what to do. Should I try to find him a specialist? The hospital is decent but I just feel like something is going to be missed. If any one has any advice it would be appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
