Its important to view this, realistically. Simply the information, no deliberate scare tactics~No need to scare the public, the facts speak for themselves}. Only the essentials!

MRSA Staph is a Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria. This microbial bacterium is a superbug known for causing serious skin infections with other eventual diseases for the immune deficient. There are other designations in the scientific literature for this bacteria based on where the bacteria is acquired by patients. The two main origins of STAPH are hospitals or epidemic MRSA (EMRSA) and community acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA).

 

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS 

MRSA Staph presents as a small, red and tender area of skin that is similar to a bug bite or pimple. When the bacterial infection disperses, the skin swells and festers. This expands to become a carbuncle, more serious than an abscess with the wound exposed, or pus filled, ready to burst.

This progression is serious and life-threatening. Evaluation by a practitioner is essential. Additional signs that an infection is developing include the following:

  • Fever
  • Yellow/white or greenish drainage that may have a foul odor
  • Tender red/dark pink area on the surface of the skin that is growing in size

The following symptoms may indicate the infection has spread:

  • Shortness of breath (concern for pneumonia)
  • Shaking chills (infection of the blood or heart valves)
  • Severe headache that is different from your normal headache patterns
  • Extreme weakness and low blood pressure
  • Joint pains accompanying any of the above symptoms

As many as 1.2 million U.S. hospital patients are infected with Staph MRSA each year, nearly 10 times as many as previously estimated. According to APIC officials, 1,237 hospitals and nursing homes responded to the survey, or about 21% of U.S. inpatient health care facilities (Stobbe, AP/Houston Chronicle, 6/07). William Jarvis, former acting director of the hospital infections program at CDC — found that 34 of 1,000 patients had active MRSA infections, and 12 of 1,000 patients were colonized with MRSA, which amounts to an MRSA incidence rate of 46 per 1,000 patients. (Chicago Tribune, 6/07). More info available at
