I contracted MRSA and it spread to 3 spots total. They were drained and I have been taking bactrium (sulfameth/trimethoprim 800/160) tablets for 1.5 mos. I recently finished my pills and now the MRSA...
Is there a test which can be taken or something administered by a doctor to see if you're a carrier? Since it's a recessive trait it's not visible but I don't know if there's a way to figure out if you're a carrier besides drawing a pedigree.
Okay, let me see if I can explain this right...My father is colorblind. The females are carriers for the gene. My dad has 3 daughters. All 3 of us carry it. There is a 50% chance that each son that the daughter has will be colorblind. My oldest sister has 2 sons and one is colorblind. My middle sister also has 2 sons and one is colorblind. I have 1 son, so there is a 50% chance that he will be colorblind as well.(He is only two years old, so we don't know yet.) So basically, if you have 2 boys, 1 is guarenteed to be colorblind. I'm not sure how it works with females. I know that there is a small chance for a female to be colorblind, but mostly they are just carriers for the gene. I was just interested to see what the chances were for my son to be colorblind, so that's all I asked about. Good luck.
