MRSA is a terrible plague that has been unleashed on the global community many believe by the pharmacuetical companies inside of the U.S.
Unfortunately there is alot of disinformation that is floating around reguarding how to treat MRSA and whether it is "cureable" and the sad truth is that it is only "treatable". If you have it you will likely always have it. Contrary to alot of stuff that you read it is NOT cureable.
MRSA hides in the hair follicular base, and nervous system tissue and likes to go dorminant. It basically hides and can sometimes be dormant for many years before causing new infections, but it will always likely come back. Over the counter products are virtually all a complete waste of time IE: Ineffective with the exception of 3 PRODUCTS worldwide. 10% povidone iodine solution, Dettol cream (30% triclosan), and Skinsure Ultra which I can guarantee will kill all MRSA atleast topically and are somewhat beneficial in treating the boils and sores afterward.
Your best friend in the world if you have MRSA is the bathtub (for 1hour) everyday without fail w/antibacterial soap. Safeguard is my preference and a good infectious disease specialist or skilled dermatoligist if you have good access to healthcare.
Oral antibiotics are
a complete waste of time and money and will likely only make you sicker via weakening your immune system.
With the antibiotic exceptions being Rifampin and Zyvox. Both of which can be greatly helpful in almost 90% of cases. Expense with the above is a real deterent though as Zyvox is extraordinarily expensive. (over $3,000 USD) per treatment.
Manuka Honey (UMF 10+) topically APPLIED DIRECTLY TO THE WOUND twice a day will also help. Leave the honey in place under the gauze bandage for best results. Wash your hands and clean your house and car interior obessively. Hand hygiene is the most important thing with MRSA as in almost 85-90% of cases it is spread from hand to hand contact. Become clean, live clean and you will survive for several years before MRSA kills you. The CDC is now saying 37% and up to 50% mortality rate around the 5 year mark.
It is far worse than what most doctors and researchers INITIALLY believed as they are not up to date on the most recent data in most cases. The newer data is even more disturbing. Dont believe the lies on the internet, as they are mostly based on misunderstanding.
Building your immune system up and becoming obessively clean will give you the best chance to survive. God bless you.
