YES. My daughter has it and I have read a lot on it..  That is what her Dr told me so I just keep things such as her toys and well pretty much the whole house very clean now. I wipe her toys down daily. I'm always cleaning her hands and bathing her. There is so much out there to read on this...  


Also called: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It causes an infection that is resistant to several common antibiotics. There are two types of infection. Hospital-associated MRSA happens to people in healthcare settings. Community-associated MRSA happens to people who have close skin-to-skin contact with others, such as athletes involved in football and wrestling. Infection control is key to stopping MRSA in hospitals. To prevent community-associated MRSA

  • Practice good hygiene
  • Keep cuts and scrapes clean and covered with a bandage until healed
  • Avoid contact with other people‚Äôs wounds or bandages
  • Avoid sharing personal items, such as towels, washcloths, razors, or clothes
  • Wash soiled sheets, towels and clothes in hot water with bleach and dry in a hot dryer

If a wound appears to be infected, see a healthcare provider. Treatment may include draining the infection and antibiotics

The MRSA is an Resistant strain of staphylococcus and is difficult to treat. It cause infections on skin and also cause systemic infections if inhaled. Its treatment require first removal of puss from the wound by incision and then use of topical and oral antibiotics. Once it is treated the it is gone. You will not be career.
