I have MRSA in my throat. I am 14. I have been in numerous emergency rooms and have been hospitalized for weeks at a time. I have had it for one month today. I began noticing I had a problem with a sore throat, an unbearable headache, and I was always tired. Later I noticed that my lymph nodes on the left side of my neck were swelling out of control. They grew past my ear and wrapped around the back side of my head. The doctors had no clue what I had at first. When I first went into my first E.R visit I was greeted with a lumbar puncture. ( they were thinking of spinal meningitious.) I was also examined with multiple CT scans of my head & neck tissue. Nothing abnormal was found. They admitted me, & put me in a room. The next Morning I was transported to a different hospital who specialized in my type of illness. I was there for a week. I was terrified while there. I had doctors saying I possibly had lymphoma. And some saying I had an infection. Finally a puss pocket formed in my lymph node. But surgeons unable to preform surgery because the puss pocket was on both my carotid & jugular artery. They said it would be too big of a risk to drain it. But I am home now. Still very sore & swollen but I am getting sick again and having to go back to that hospital tomorrow morning. So PLEASE if you suspect you have this, go to the HOSPITAL now! ( a regular physician can do absolutely nothing for you! This is a highly life threatening illness even when being treated! Please, be careful.

The symptoms of MRSA infection depend on where you've been infected.MRSA most often appears as a skin infection, like a boil or abscess. It also might infect a surgical wound. In either case, the area would look:

Many people who actually have staph skin infections often mistake it for a spider bite.If staph infects the lungs and causes pneumonia, you might have:

  • css.webmd.com background-repeat: No-repeat; background-attachment: Initial; -webkit-background-clip: Initial; -webkit-background-origin: Initial; background-color: Initial; background-position: 0px 4px; ">Chills
MRSA can cause many other symptoms since it can infect the urinary tract or the bloodstream.Very rarely, staph can result in necrotizing fasciitis, or "flesh-eating" bacterial infections. These are serious skin infections that spread very quickly. While frightening, necrotizing fasciitis caused by staph is rare. There have only been a handful of reported cases.

Call your doctor if:

In most cases, MRSA is easily treated. But since MRSA infection can be serious or -- rarely -- fatal, don't ignore signs of infection. See your health care provider.If you are already being treated for an infection, watch for signs that your medicine isn't working. If you are taking an antibiotic, call your doctor if

  • css.webmd.com background-repeat: No-repeat; background-attachment: Initial; -webkit-background-clip: Initial; -webkit-background-origin: Initial; background-color: Initial; background-position: 0px 4px; ">The infection keeps getting worse

People who are ill or have a compromised immune system have a higher risk of getting MRSA. If you have a condition that lowers your immunity, call your doctor right away if you think that you might have an infection.
