I don't think it's you Tasmin, I tried to check it out too, but it never worked either, though I have to say I use firefox with noscript, which stops websites running scripts without your approval. But even so it usually gives you a warning, that something is trying to run scripts

In this case there was nothing, I suspect a bit more tweaking is going on

Jayne's message is from 2005 - perhaps that has something to do with it!

I've had MRSA for 8 years, anywhere from 1-10 abscesses a month. I've been on every
oral antibiotic out there as well as all IV antibiotics on the market. Most IV antibiotics
are no longer an options for me due to a few bouts of serum sickness. I don't know if
they're becoming more painful or if I'm just so tire of being in pain that it's driving
me crazy. I have an ID specialist that never seems to be in the office so he's very little
help. It seems like most ER doctors don't really know how to deal with me and my
MRSA. I'm at a dead end, I know I can't live with pain like this for the rest of my life
but I know if I give up..... I have no chance of surviving.

Hello all. I had MRSA Oct 2009. i was in hospital for 11 days and 12
more at home on IV. I believe i lived due to a drastic change in my
diet. I had the tests and no longer carry or have any active MRSA in
my body and I want to keep it that way. I've had the benefit of being
in contact with someone who knew MRSA kills. In order for it to grow
and kill it needs an low ph body. A single Soda a day sends the MRSA
into overdrive. Sugar is a killer. Check into a high ph diet. Lots
of leafy greens. This has kept the MRSA from being able to grow on or
in my body. Also the sore was healed even with a deep wound with the
help of a body wash of Sea Salt and Honey. Just my two bits of

My husband contracted MRSA a few months ago and continues to get boils and random swellings in odd parts of his body---lips, tongue, bottom of foot, and thumb. Anyone out there have this problem? The doctors really don't want to admit the swellings are connected to MRSA, but they began after he contracted MRSA.

I had a Boil on my foot. I first went to the Doctor last Thursday, she said it was a fungal infection to use Lamisil and it should go away. I talked her into Keeflex for Skin infection but she never said a word about MRSA. Then it got bigger and the pressure was to hard to bear. So, I went to ER on Saturday. They lanced it, xrayd for bone infection which was negative, and sent culture off... I have not yet received the results. My question is, if it is MRSA, which it probably is, should I be concerned about it spreading to blood or lungs/mucus? Should I insist on Blood and Sputum cultures? I have not been feeling well in general, no fever I don't think unless it is low grade. And the malaise could be caused by antibiotic. I just want to be safe. What are the odds of it passing thrgough to blood or lungs and other areas?

I have treated 100's cases involving MRSA; most commonly in my
immunocompromise patient population (diabetics).
Most of these infections could be prevented with good skin hygiene.
Unfortunately some of the patients developed severe wounds, leading to
hospitalization, sepsis, and death from MRSA complication.

I developed a simple topical lotion with anntimicrobial properties to assist my
patients with their skin hygiene needs.
