Recommended Posts

i've been going to yale dermatology for the past month to try and figure if i have DH- i've been on dapsone for about 2.5 weeks... went in last week with another outbreak and got a cortisone shot, the dr also did a strep and staph culutre, and i got my results. i have a staph infection!!! staph infections can cause skin rash's, blisters... alsmost similar to DH. i'm now going off dapsone for some antibiotics for 2 weeks. lets hope this works, and it's not DH. keep your fingers crossed for me!!! thanks

Make sure you eat lots of yogurt while your on those antibiotics if you tolerate dairy. I hope you get some relief soon and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Make sure you also take every one of those antibiotics they gave you, staph can be hard to get rid of otherwise.
