Medical - Staff Infection Resistant To Most Antibiotics< read all 1 reviews
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THESE PHOTOS SHOW MRSA AT A MORE ADVANCED STAGE. MRSA CAN START ON YOUR SKIN WITH A LITTLE RED BUMP OR PIMPLE WITH A LITTLE HEAD ON IT. IT CAN ALSO LIKES TO START INNOCENTLY ON SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS AN INGROWN HAIR. IF YOU SEE THIS, KEEP A GOOD EYE ON IT, AND FOR PRECAUTION KEEP IT COVERED. IF IT DOES NOT GO AWAY OR IT GETS WORSE, SEE THE DOCTOR!!! DURING THE SUMMER WITH PUBLIC POOLS, PARKS, ETC. OPEN TO EVERYONE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE CAREFUL AND PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE AFTER PUBLIC CONTACT.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacterium responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans. It is also calledmultidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (ORSA). MRSA is any strain of Staphylococcus aureusthat has developed resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics, which include the penicillins (methicillin, dicloxacillin, nafcillin, oxacillin, etc.) and thecephalosporins. Strains unable to resist these antibiotics are classified as methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus, or MSSA. The development of such resistance does not cause the organism to be more intrinsically virulent than strains of Staphylococcus aureus that have no antibiotic resistance, but resistance does make MRSA infection more difficult to treat with standard types of antibiotics and thus more dangerous.
