MRSA

Awhile ago I posted that Kayley had a pimple on her girl parts that seemed to be infected.  I took her to the doctor and it turned out to be MRSA.  She was prescribed an antibiotic and got better.  Then, a week or two later, Olivia had a pimple on her butt.  I was hoping it would turn out to be nothing but sure enough, it got worse and worse and I had to take her in also.  MRSA for her, too.  Just as she was finishing her course of antibiotics, Kayley got it again.  This time, in addition to antibiotics, we've been doing bleach baths, Hibiclens (a special cleansing solution) and prescription ointment.  It seems to be under control so far.  What a pain.
