Hello, MRSA is contagious, so be careful to always wash hands, It is going through hospitals with lightening speed, he probably caught it there, Bacteria is the antibiotic to use...If it gets real bad...he might need a round of steroids to get it under control...when he washes...do not use same "WASHRAG" to wash areas not yet exposed to bacteria...use contaminated one for sores....new one for rest of body and as well do not allow others to use same one as he uses...God Bless!!

The infection is actually called MRSA. It is caused by a bacteria. CaleedStaphylococcus aureus. It results in a skin infection and makes the infected area swollen, red, painful and filled of pus. See the link below for further details about symptoms and treatment:
I don't have mrsa yet but this morning I went to a hospital to see a patient that I have to take care of. I am a cna I am assign to take care of this patient when she gets home. Now I am scared to take care of this patient and I don't know yet if I will accept the job
MRSA is a tyoe of Staph infection The symptoms of the disease include small red bumps on the skin which later turn into deep and painful absessess. Mostly the infection limits itself to the skin but it can also effect the bones, joints and the blood stream. To know more about the disease and how you can prevent from it and get tested, see the following link:
MRSA is actually Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It is a bacterium which is responsible for infections in humans that are very difficult to treat. This bacterium is also resistant to many antibiotics.
This bacterium effects the skin only. It can result in the following symptoms:
- Cellulitis : Which appears in the form of small red bumps.
- Boils: Pus filled infection of hair follicles.
- Impetigo: Pus filled blisters
- Sty: Which is an infection of the eyelid gland.
In most serious cases, this infection can spread to the internal organs and can cause low blood pressure, joint pains, shortness of breath and rash around the body.
Now it seems that you are still not infected. But the infection must be dormant somewhere in your home. Boil all the bedding and clothings with detergent and boiling water. Also keep the mostly used furniture pieces in the sunlight to kill infection. If possible, use a disinfectant all over your house.
I have on the back of my upper right leg a spot that started out to be real itchy and it looks like a pimple with a big head on it. That was yesterday and today there are about 5 more spots and it is sore even to sit down. I am also noticing one on the side of my foot.
How long does it usually take to cure the red scaly scabby sore?
How do you get mrsa.... What starts the disease in humans and how do you come in contact with it..
Can MRSA return after a long period of time? Had acute MRSA infection 3 years ago and now having same symptoms
There was an outbreak here around 6 months ago. Mrsa consists of open, red sores that are highly contagious; the schools here were shut down to be disinfected when the cafeteria lady had it! As far as pain or itching, I am unsure. A close friend's 2-year old had it, and never complained of itching or soreness. It's best to keep the site of infection wrapped tightly, and see a doctor asap so that no one around you contracts the condition.
Is it normal to have short sweats and tiredness with mrsa
