Carry hand sanitizer with you, you never know when you may need it. read more
MRSA is a methicillin resistance staphylococcus aureus bacterial infection or multi drug resistance bacterial. The causes of MRSA is most commonly due to the genetic printing of the bacteria which make them resistance to any form of antibiotics. They are most commonly affect hospital environment, prison mates or intravenous drug user as well as immunocompromised patients. The treatment may include the usage of antibiotics known as vancomycin.
MRSA is all around us, even in bodies of water. We even carry the organism in our nose. However, the way you get infected is through a break in the skin that allows the bacteria to gain access to the inside of the body. Peope with a depressed immune system are more susceptible. As long as your skin is intact and you have a normal immune system, you shouldn't be too susceptible. Avoid contact with people you know are infected with MRSA and use good handwashing and you should be safe!
As the others have already stated here it is a bacterial infection of the skin, but can enter in through the nose, or mouth, to those who are exposed. I know of one man that had an infection in his lungs from it, and died despite the doctors best efforts. He was already ill, so was unable to fight it. New research points to garlic as an antidote to topical infections, and new products have emerged. If I had MRSA, I would go to a doctor to have it diagnosed, and discuss my options. Really not something you would want to take lightly.The new topical product can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Alliderm-Gel-Topi … B004VNDS60

What do YOU know about MRSA?Curious if this illness is common knowledge. There are many misconceptions about the illness, so I am curious what the general public thinks it is.
