Question
My son had a mass removed in 08 Epson his face. It was MRSA. Has had 8 -9 flare ups since behind hrs ears that that had to be lanced everytime. If continually feels achey  like he has the flu especially when he  has a flare up. What treatment is avail abe for the fatigue?  And could it be caused by the MRSA? He never had a problem with fatigue before

Answer
I am not sure why he has fatigue, that is unusual with simple MRSA infections..... I think you should not assume they are related yet and have him get a full evaluation.....   I would start an evaluation from the start, looking for anemia, thyroid problems, etc., and see where that leads the evaluation.
