I am worried, I have Acinetobacter lwoffii, 4+. i got it after I had the flu this summer. I was first on cipro,then bactrim then back to cipro but I got so sick on that cirpo so I stopped everything. Now I am back being treated again going on my 2nd round of bactrim DS and using some kind of pretreated wash clothes of peroxcide and something else.
Are you better yet? I have unfortunately caught this same gram negative bacteria and i will not go away. I am scared also. I have been on bactrim DS for over 5 months. Now on Cipro, Using Clorox directly on skin but burns like you know what. Hope you are better
I had this in 1987, it lasted months. My doctor gave me carbapenem drug and even after the last script finished I stayed with a sore throat. A pathologist told me it can go dormant and colonize somewhere in the body and come back when your immune system is down. I hate to think about that.
I was told in Aug 2014 it was the cause of my skin infection. Still have it. I'm curious what others have as symptoms. I have lesions on my arms, legs, scalp and face that started as what appeared to be a simple case of folliculitis.
