  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Large carbuncle caused by staph. aureus located on inside of thigh near labia. Later appearing on breasts and buttocks. Had been taking ciprofloxacin when it was small. When it got the size of a baseball, I had to have it lanced and was prescribed Bactrim. It seemed to do a good job, but I continued to get small carbuncles (breast, near labia on opposite leg). No urinalysis was done but have been prescribed Nitrofurantoin because when the cultures finally came back (13 days later) that was what was seen necessary. I just picked it up from the pharmacy and will see if it works. But, I am still wondering why I was prescribed a drug for a UTI when no urinalysis was done and I have no symptoms of a UTI. The pharmacist gave no answers other than "I guess that's what the doctor thinks you need."
