  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Was diagnosed with MRSA following neck surgery. I had been on vancomycin 2g twice a day via IV. My trough levels were not reaching "therapeutic" levels so I was switched to Bactrim DS in late July. Wound is still open and painful. About three days ago I noticed blisters on my chest. I had shingles two years ago and these blisters I have now are painfully similar. I'm very concerned that I have shingles again and want to know what impact having MRSA will have on shingles.
