List of MRSA Symptoms

List of General MRSA Symptoms

My first hub in this great and authoritative community is dedicated to my life challenge of researching and improving knowledge about different medical conditions and diseases. One of most dangerous diseases today and great challenge for for people who developing new ways of diagnosing and handling diseases is definitely MRSA. This germ of Staphylococcus Aures bacteria which is resistant to methicillin antibiotics is also known as " MRSA Superbug" in medical circles. Regular Staphylococcus is one of most common bacteria and normally can be discovered on every fourth person on the world, mainly positioned on skin, in nose or throat. This type usually is not dangerous to our body, unless the individual has weakened immune system or get injured. In that case,when natural defense system not working properly, MRSA may enter into patient's organic structure and cause life threatening infection, sometimes even with fatal consequences. Most often way of transmission of this disease is by physical contact with person who have or carry this dangerous germ. Also it can be infected by gym equipment, toilets, bathrooms, sharing towels (in sport) and inappropriate hygiene conditions of locker rooms. With this I'll finish with basic introduction with MRSA infection and start with today's topic and that is description of general symptoms of Superbug staph disease.

Symptoms of this infection may come out like small bumps who are painful,placed on surface of patient's skin and normally look like acne. Normally, that is the point from where MRSA attacks our body entering into bloodline and spreading all over body structure usually causing severe troubles which are hard to stop. Best way to to recognize MRSA symptoms is to look for list in following text.

List of general MRSA symptoms with basic explanations:

→ Cellulitis is an infection of the skin and sift tissue, it appears all over body, most ordinarily on extremities (legs,arms) and face

→ Carbuncles are bigger than boils, with openings draining pus on the skin. It is caused by SA bacteria infection. They are contagious and can spread to other body regions or other persons.

→ Furuncles or Skin Boils are infections of the hair follicles, they are generally induced by SA bacteria infection, recognized as painful swollen skin area caused by pus.

→ Hordeolumes or Styes are an infection of the sebaceous glands of the Zeis on the eyelashes or the apocrine sweat glands of Moll. They are usually caused by SA bacteria infection or by the blocking of an oil glan on the eyelash.

→ Impetigo
is a bacterial skin infection that is very contagious, most usually infected are younger children and close contact in sports.

→ Abscesses
are collections of dead neutrophils (pus) that gathered in a cavity as a defensive reaction to prevent the spread of the infection to other areas of the body.

→ Bacteremia or Bloodstream Infection is the invasion of bacteria in the bloodstream. This type of infection can occur due to a surgical procedure, infection, injection or wound. It can pass without symptoms or can lead to septic shock, witch can end with fatal consequences.

→ Urinary tract infection is a bacterial infection of the urinary tract. Bacteria gets into the bladder or kidney and they multiply in the urin, witch does not contain bacteria usually.

Other infections and diseases like influenza, smallpox, wound infections or postoperative suppuration also may cause Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection..

On the end of symptoms overview it is important to note that every single human organism can present other symptoms of MRSA, every single human organism has own unique strength in fight against diseases and because that symptoms vary from case to case.
