    A staph skin infection would not fluctuate with your periods. The infection may remain constant or often progress, leading to swelling, pain, pus and even fever and chills. You should see your doctor about this because this could be dishydrotic eczema, certain joint diseases, autoimmune conditions and diseases like hypothyroidism. Certain viral infections could cause these symptoms but it would not persist for so long and fluctuate with your periods to this extent. Your doctor will be able to advise you further.
