MRSA is a SUPER serious, SUPER contagious, SUPER deadly bacterial infection caused by the misuse of antibiotics. It is most commonly found in hospitals.

MRSA will generally start with swollen, painful red bumps that might resemble pimples or spider bites. The affected area might be warm, full of pus, and accompanied by a fever

Treatment depends on the type of infection, the location of it, how severe the infection is, and the antibiotics available to the strain of MRSA.
Other treatments include draining and testing pus, and antimicrobial therapy. Some crazy meds they give you for MRSA include: Clindamycin, Tetracycline, Rifampin, and Linezolid.

U ded.

  • The only “cure” for MRSA is to kill the bacteria.
  • However, it is usually immune to antibiotics, because it developed from their overuse.
  • New stronger antibiotics are being developed in hopes to destroy MRSA.
  • They may kill it, but they may just make it stronger and more resistant.

Preventions of MRSA:

  • Keeping hands and hospitals as sanitized as possible
  • Keeping MRSA patients isolated and away from others
  • Wearing gloves and gowns when exposed to a MRSA patient
  • Disposal of equipment or clothing that has been exposed to MRSA
  • Swabbing for MRSA
