On week 6 of battling a staph infection.
I have somehow managed​ to get a staph infection I've used alcohol peroxide triple antibiotic Neosporin and even Lancing the ulcers & trying to trim the infection out followed by alcohol then peroxide an antibiotic cream and Band-Aids, isn't healing the staph infection or the ulcers.. Then tried​ scrubbing the ulcers with a wire brush & alcohol & peroxide straight to the scrub sites then triple antibiotic cream and Band-Aids. It has slowly spread over 6 weeks and I'm too embarrassed to go to the ER or my doctor about it it's starting to concern me though. 18 to 25 ulcers 1/2 the diameter of a pencil eraser, still infected and slowly spreading. I need to know what medicines to try and care plan to use to try and kill/heal the staph infection and heal the ulcers before they spread even more...

Hi! You could be having some severe form of infection. Clinical photographs would have been helpful. But it may require a proper course of medications. Do not rub or scratch the rashes.
