So i was recently diagnosed with a type of staph infection that you can get from boils/pimples being infected. The 2nd day it was very painfull and redness about the size of my hand around a quarter size sore on my leg. I went to the doctor about 5 days ago for it and it does not hurt anymore and looks a little better. The redness kind of turned into a light bruise type color around the area. But yesterday afternoon i felt myself getting sick, i devloped a fever (peak was about 103) that ive been treating with motrin, but i also have sever body aches, painful sensitve skin and fatigue and headache. What im wondering is if this is because of my infection or did i pick up a flu type virus? My brother had a 24 hour flu like this like a week ago. But if this is because of my infection is it normal to get a fever with staph? and if not is it a sign of possible blood poisoning?
Thanks in advance
