Mrsa Treatment | MRSA Vs Clostridium Difficile - Which Is Worst?


I saw a newspaper article that really made me angry, as it was trying to play one infection (MRSA) against a nasty dose of diarrhea and vomiting called Clostridium difficile. They tried to play down the MRSA and play up the Clostridium difficile.

Which is worse? The one you have, as opposed to the one you don’t have.

Let’s make one thing clear. You can be colonized by MRSA and not suffer any ill effects until your skin is pierced, broken or grazed and the MRSA comes into contact with the lower layers of tissue and blood, then the infections starts and is difficult to stop.

Let’s get back to basics.

Clostridium difficile is caused when the balance of the stomach becomes disturbed and good bacteria is killed off leaving only bad bacteria. That is a very simple explanation, but it serves as a basic understanding. The symptoms are simple, but the cause is the overuse of antibiotics. Let’s remember that antibiotics are often in the meat we eat, as well as in what the doctor prescribes. The solution to Clostridium difficile is to get the balance of the stomach correct again with good and bad bacteria fighting each other and staying in balance. There are two treatments that offer some hope. The first is for the patient to eat probiotic yogurt as this will help to introduce good bacteria into the gut. However this approach is not always acceptable to the doctor. The alternative solution is to get some healthy excrement, from a healthy member of the same family, and introduce that into the stomach to reset the balance. This is not to eat the excrement but to put it into the stomach using a tube down the nasal passage. This has an even more limited acceptance among doctors as they must prepare several doses of the excrement to be passed into the patient over several days. Feeding patients excrement is somehow beyond what is acceptable.


MRSA on the other hand is a common infection that is carried by people and animals. You can give it to your pet and receive it from your pet. Sometimes both the family and its pets need to be treated so that the MRSA is taken out of their environment. When someone is infected the cure would seem to be antibiotics but the common antibiotics often strengthen the MRSA against the stronger antibiotics that would normally cure it. In many ways’ prevention is better than cure. Simple hand and body hygiene. Washing your hands in soap and water, and drying them afterwards. Showering after sport. Not sharing hygiene equipment such as soap, razors, and towels. Not sharing sports clothing or shoes. The treatment from a doctor is a blood test to determine if the infection is MRSA. If it is then either a course or targeted antibiotics to get rid of the infection, or draining the abscess of the puss in a sterile environment.

So the worst is the condition you have. MRSA you can prevent by having good hygiene, and instilling that into your children. Clostridium difficile is more of a problem to prevent, and doctors need to come up with a treatment they find acceptable.
