Fungal Infection of the scalp?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My teen daugher started having oozing of her scalp and was red and tender, also swollen glands.  Today her eyes are swollen and irritated.  The DR. sent swap of scalp secretions to lab and prescribed antibiotics and antibiotic ointment for her scalp?  I am not sure that she should be taking antibiotics, unless lab results come back and tell us what it is.  My other concern is that it May be Rubella without the rash?  (why did her eyes get irritated?

sorry to take so long to answer this.  I hope she's doing well.  I'm not certain about your situation without actually seeing it.  Also, I generally don't answer acute illness questions like this, since it's not really appropriate to answer acute illness questions in a forum.  I make judgements on that case by case.  Hope she's doing well.
