Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria cause potentially very severe infection which is hard treatable and not so easily to determine at the beginning. Staph bacteria can be found on about 25% percent of human population, mainly located on skin, in nasal cavity or in throat region. In natural life conditions Staph bacteria is considered as a completely harmless, until natural immune system working properly. When the immune system is hurt, MRSA can cause severe infections and even dying. MRSA can be picked up through skin to skin contact and if the skin has been hurt, but also by toilets, gym equipment, storage locker rooms and towels.
First symptoms can be described with small bumps (painful) on skin surface that look like acne, MRSA may get into the bloodline through the minor skin trauma (cut,wound) and can cause serious infections all over patient's organic structure.
The symptoms to look for are:
1.) Skin Boils
7.) Urinary tract infection
8.) Bloodstream infection
Skin Boils or furuncles are deep infections of the hair follicles, they are commonly caused by SA bacteria infection. They are a painful swollen skin region caused by pus.
Carbuncles are bigger than boils, with openings draining pus on the skin. It is caused by SA bacteria infection. Carbuncles are contagious and can spread to other body regions or other people.
Styes or hordeolumes are an infection of the sebaceous glands of the Zeis on the eyelashes or the apocrine sweat glands of Moll. They are usually caused by SA bacteria infection or by the blocking of an oil glan on the eyelash.
Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection that is very contagious, most usually infected are younger children and close contact sports players.
Abscesses are collections of dead neutrophils (pus) that gathered in a cavity as a defensive reaction to prevent the spread of the infection to other areas of the body.
Cellulitis is an medical condition of the skin, it comes out most ordinarily on the face or lower leg, but can come out anywhere on the body.
Urinary tract infection is a bacterial infection of the urinary tract. Bacteria goes into the bladder or kidney and they multiply in the urin, witch does not contain bacteria ordinarily. Bloodstream infection or Bacteremia is the invasion of bacteria in the bloodstream. Bloodstream infection can occur due to a surgical procedure, injection, infection or wound. It can pass without symptoms or can lead to septic shock, witch can lead to death.
MRSA can also cause wound infections, smallpox, influenza and postoperative suppuration. Laboratory testing will set right diagnose, results are able within 2-3 days, but there is a new DNA testing that can show correctly diagnose after only couple of hours.In case that outcomes are positive, MRSA is handling with mixture of medicines, specifically designated for each patient to achieve maximum efficiency.Antibiotics are not so effective in healing process because MRSA has ability to adapt on several types of medicament, and that is great danger from this germ.The best prevention for the MRSA bacteria is individual hygiene, exhaustively wash your hands, and disinfect them, using band-aids on your cuts and wounds. If there is any suspicion in symptoms and signs mentioned in article should be care and search for medical assistance immediately. Like with mostly any other disease, the sooner it is identified and the sooner the processing starts, the more likely it is that it can be taken care of without further complications.
