DS has staph again (and pinkeye)

poor little guy. His toenail grow funny and split apart and snag and tear off etc. There is no nail fungus. Nobody knows why they do it, its just "the way they are". Recently he was hospitalized with a bad staph cellulitis of the toe, strep cellulitis of the anus, and a kidney infection. The toe staph is back. He has pinkeye too. And an asthma-like cough at night.
We're trying a new oral antibiotic and a topical one plus toe soaks (can I put tto in that?). But if he gets a fever, or the red line up his leg again, or no improvement in 2 days we'll be on 7-10 days of IV abx

yes. We go back to the immunolgist sept 6th (theres a long post about that below). He also has seizures, limb length discrepency, tortocollis, vision delays, unknown hearing loss in one ear, eczema, keratosis, plagiocephaly (treated), speech delay, suspected reflux, suspected oral-motor deficiency, reactive airway disease, lymphangioma/cystic hygroma... and I'm probably forgetting some things.
He is infectiously joyful. He is the most pleasant, happy, content baby/tot you will encounter. He makes people happy. He is downright jolly. You'd just love him. Chubby, with unruly soft curls of hair and smiling brown eyes.
