the Positive Coag Staph aures the main culprit that cause soft tissue infection in human.
But there also the NEGATIVE Coagulase Staph.
I have a weird case of infection from the NEGATIVE kind of Staph.
Anyways, can you your story of Staph infection?
And is possible for the lab to read the wrong Staph, like it a positive coag staph, but they read it as a Negative Coag staph?
I will share my story below, if you not interest to read it you can just skip the portion below: sorry tmi I guess.
I got infectied with a NEGATIVE Coagulase Staph infection.
This was confirmed by an culture where it show light growth of NEGATIVE Coag Staph Simulans. This specific staph is the main infection in cattles, horses, cows etc… It rarely infected human (only few cases documented) and those that got infected were herders and butchers, as they are the one that deal with these animals on daily basis.
However sometimes this Staph Simulans does live on human normal skin flora but usually don’t cause harm.
Noted, there is NO cattles or horses where I live, I live right in the city not the rural, so there no herders, butchers, etc… I think you know what I mean. It just so weird that I got infected with this specific staph.
And worst, out of all the place it can infected me, it infected my belly button. My belly button was oozing out foul smell mushy pus mixed with red blood. Doctor did a culture, result said: Light growth, bacteria Staph Simulans, a NEGATIVE Coagulase staph, that up to today there only a few cases document that it cause harm to human.
I don’t have any pets, no where near me has sheep, horses, cattles, etc… How the hell I got this thing in my deep belly button! It just so weird.
It is possible for the lab to read the wrong Staph, like it a positive coag staph, but they read it as a Negative Coag staph?
