This summer, I had surgery to remove staph infection, my doctor said if I waited one day before going into the hospital for my check-up that it would have turned into MRSA. I had it on my backside. I couldn't sit for days, weeks actually. Well I healed from surgery back in September, had the surgery back in June. It's now December and I have found another spot on my **m, right under the scar from surgery this summer. I'm terrified that I have it again. What are my chances of having to go through this again only after 6 months? Should I make an apppointment now while it only is the size of a quarter? I thought it could be a sweat filled pore in my skin from sweating at work.
