I have MRSA(the form of staph that is resistant to most antibiotics). Yesterday I went to an infectious disease doctor and he gave me a thrid antibiotic and told me to start takng baths in water containing BLEACH.
... I was wondering if anyone has ever done this, or if it is a weird custom in his home land(he's forgein).
The amount of bleach the doctor is asking you to put in the water (1/2 a cup in a full tub) makes it about as toxic as swimming in a pool. It prevents the colonization of staph, which keeps you from getting a recurring MRSA. So what you need to ask yourself is, does it sting when you go in the pool? Is it crack headish to go swimming? Or is it crackhead-ish to subject yourself to another bout of an infection that could put your life at risk? Try the bath, make sure you wash well afterwards the same as you would when getting out of the pool. Also, change your linens daily for a month, wash your hands regularly, and ask your doctor about a nasal cream called Bactriban which also prevents colonization. And... not that it should matter, but if it makes you feel better to know, I am a natural born American citizen. Take the bath, avoid the MRSA.
lol I think it will sting I strongly=y think you should go to another doctor!
please comment on mine (maddog11)
Bathing in bleach is a little...crackhead-ish. Maybe you should consult a doctor and see what he says about it??
