Mrsa Symptoms | Symptoms Of MRSA - Treatment And Care Of Contagious Bacterial ...

MRSA or Methicillin Resistant Staphyloccus Aureus has been in the news and a concern to many due to the press reports. When you hear that an infection can resist antibiotics it makes you worried. However, it is not resistant to all antibiotics and treatment is essential. Its symptoms start to become noticeable once the MRSA bacteria penetrate the stream of the blood passing through wounds or cuts. Impetigo, septic wounds, boils and abscesses can be consequences. It is contagious so you want to avoid contact with others who may have it as well as prevent it from being caught by others.

Seeing a doctor is important both for diagnosis and the correct way to treat the infection on your skin. Depending on the form the infection takes, he may drain it or have his staff do this. He’ll perform tests through examining your urine, skin and blood. Once you have been diagnosed with this illness, you will be given prescription medicines taken orally which are usually Vancomycin or Zyvox. It is important that you follow the instructions provided by the doctor when taking these medications. Take the exact dosage and avoid skipping treatment if you are doing this outpatient.

Some people may need to be treated inpatient and require the antibiotics to be given via IV. Don’t try to talk your way out of this if it’s medically advised. Depending on the nature of the bacteria, wound or eruption they may not think it is appropriate for outpatient care. MRSA can also spread to internal organs.

MRSA infections have been appearing more in sports practices such as football and the infected person needs to keep the wound bandaged and may need to stop playing till healing is noted by his physician. Sharing items of other team members is generally not advised due to the possibility not only of catching a staph infection but also fungal infections and rashes.
