damn.. antibiotics couldnt do the trick? that sucks

Yeah, he was going to a wound care doctor. They kept trying different antibiotics, had him in the hospital for 3 days doing IV antibiotics, nothing would kick it.

whoa, how?

Not really sure.

He claims he got out of my hot tub and his feet were really soft and he got a cut on the bottom of his toe that he didn't take care of.

However, I talked to the pharmacist for a while about it, we have a small compounding pharmacy in our town and the wound doctor ordered some sort of bleach solution called "Dakins" that kroger's pharmacy wasn't able to get in, but the local place had it on the shelf.
Anyways, got talking to him, and he said his best guess was that it was a brown recluse spider bite. He said they often carry staph and you won't notice the bite until its all infected, and the venom helps break down the flesh as well.

Fucking gnarly dude. I guess it went well?

Went really well, actually. Originally the doctor said he'd need to stay 2 days in the hospital with a wound vac on it. But after surgery they said it went so well he can go home. He was up and walking on it within an hour with no pain.

He's only on 25mg hydrocodone every 6 hours, and not having any pain at all.

Badass. That's great man. Glad to hear it.
