a friend of mine has mrsa, and has been told that she will always have it. Does anyone have any information on this disease? Thankyou for your help!
Methycillin Resistant Staphyloccus Aureuas
It is a staph infection that is immune to most evey antiobiotic there is, and is caused bý the overuse of antibiotics over the years. The staph infection mutated to overcome being killed by each individual antibiotic until it reached its current state.
MRSA is highly contagious and depending on where your friends infection is you should be very careful (like--if its on her groin and you and her are not intimately close--then you shouldn't worry about it except to sleep in separate beds for sleepovers). It can be transmitted on just about everything. Technically yes, she will always have this but unless it is active it shouldn't bother her too much.
I have MRSA and it's extremely annoying and painful. the antibiotics are usually really strong and make you feel sick..I've had this since the beggining of the year..they have tried everything but nothing is working...and do'nt freak out...it doesn't help at all...she just needs to wash her hands a lot and keep herself super clean...
