I am almost 11 weeks pregnant and a couple of days ago I went to urgent care and was diagnosed with MRSA in my ear. They prescribed Clindamycin to take care of the Staph infection, and I've been taking that since yesterday. This morning I noticed that this very small bug bite looking thing suddenly had a red swollen painful, warm area around it, towards the back of my thigh (which looks similar to a picture of cellulitis that I saw online). What I'm wondering is, how high are the risks associated with having staph, taking that medication (a category b) and perhaps having another one on my leg? Also, since it seems like the infection is on my leg, does that mean that it has spread through my body, or could it have gotten infected from me touching my ear, and then scratching my leg without realizing it?
I'm just really worried about this affecting my pregnancy. It would be awesome to get some advice from either someone who has gone through having this kind of infection during early pregnancy and or a doctor.
Thanks so much in advance for any advice at all.
