MRSA Super-bug Facts

MSRA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus.  It is a staph infection that is resistant to most antibiotics that would be used to treat it. Most often, patients who suffer from this type of infection are in hospitals, long-term care facilities or similar environments. Staph is usually contracted by people with weakened immune systems. They have either been ill, or they are elderly. It manifests as a skin infection or a severe form of pneumonia. Due to its resilience, it is known as a “superbug”. Not everyone who contracts the infection becomes symptomatic. However, they are carriers and can pass the germ to others.

This bacterium is usually harmless, but will enter the body if there is a cut or some type of sore or abrasion. Other ways staph can infect the body is through the nose and urinary tract. In recent years, there has been an increase in healthy people who contract staph infections. They are usually athletes or people who share personal items or equipment. MSRA is the result of unnecessary or excessive antibiotic use over the course of many years, or decades. The body has built up a resistance to the medications frequently prescribed for the flu, colds and minor infections.

SuperBug Antibiotic

Despite being broad-based medications, antibiotics do not destroy every germ they target. Those that remain may mutate and become resistant to almost all typical medications. Staph infections move quickly. Symptoms are visible in 24-48 hours of being contracted. They include small red bumps or boils that are often mistaken for pimples or spider bites. Fever and rashes may also manifest. Within 72 hours, MSRA can gain a strong hold in the body. Once that happens, they are resistant to most treatments. The bumps grow and become painful. Infections located in the skin can usually be treated effectively if caught quickly.

More virulent strains spread rapidly and cause severe illness, affecting the vital organs. Widespread infections vary from flesh-eating pneumonia to those that affect the valves of the heart, bones, and joints. The population segments that have the highest risk for contracting MSRA are people with weakened immune systems. This includes the elderly, young children, diabetics, cancer patients and intravenous drug users. Those that live around a lot of people, such as college students, prison inmates and athletes are also at risk. Colloidal silver, taken properly may help reduce the risk of infection.
