MRSA on my spine
Posted by Bill Specht
Last Reply October 6, 2015 at 23:35
Started August 7, 2010 at 16:34
In March I was diagnosed with MRSA at T-12 of my spine. It was located in the lymph nodes. I am allergic to vancomycin so I was put on an IV combo of zyvox and Daptomycin. Two needle aspirations were unsuccessful. Surgery was done to "clean out" the infection. Initially all was well, however, the MRSA returned. This time it is anterior and right of L-1. Apparently either the needle attempts or the surgery damaged nerves that inervate my abdominal muscle and I now have bulging, untoned muscles increasing my waist size by no less than 3 inches. I have constant pain in my back. The most recent MRI showed 3 pockets of infection. The ID doctor discontinued the Zyvox and now I receive 100ml of daptomycin daily. If you have any information that might help please email me at

cured MRSA - long term infection
Started by Andy Posted: October 6, 2015 at 01:14

Hi all , Just wanted to chime in on the forum with a personal experience.

I caught MRSA about 5 or six months ago, I had a scratch on my leg that went crazy, it started eating a hole in my leg, then spread to my chest, and eyes etc.

So I took antibiotics which caused anaphylatctic reactions and helped the stph to spread even further into my nostrils.

So I went looking for an alternative to the docotrs meds that w... read more

My name is Jennifer and when I was 25 I was diagnosed with a brain tumor! I'm
now 45! It was not malignant but still a growing tumor. Had it operated on in 95
was not able to remove it. Had it operated on 11 years later cause it had gotten
large enough it was putting pressure on my eyes and other things! That was
2006! I got mrsa during that procedure supposedly killed it with antibiotics but
then in 2014 learned that I had mrsa in my skull. It had been there for 7 years
eating at my skull! Doctor said my skull was like soup when he went to remove it!
Then Jan 2015 I had a plate put in! Now I'm having problems with my back from
the bottom of my skull all the way down to my tail bone! It has been bothering me
for over a month to the point I can't hardly work. I'm a hairdresser so I stand all

never had this much pain in my back before. I was wondering if it is at all possible

MRSA on Scalp and Hair Loss??
Posted by Fleur

My boyfriend recently contracted a MRSA staph infection and was in the hospital for
four days fighting it. I contracted the staph infection on my leg a few months ago
and was prescribed an antibiotic to combat it. About three weeks ago I noticed a
large uncomfortable lump on my scalp. After going to the doctor and telling her the
history of MRSA, she again prescribed me an antibiotic without taking a culture. The
MRSA, similar to other cases, was on the skin and produced a large, infected (pus,
blood, etc), bump on my scalp. As it began to heal it scabbed over in a thin almost
white scab. For the past two weeks I have noticed that the area that was swollen was
slowly dropping hair. I now have a large half dollar sized portion on my scalp with
absolutely no hair and the entire area itches. Is this normal??? Will my hair grow
back? I am quite concerned as this area is easily visible and on the front of my scalp.
Has anyone else experienced something li... read more

Hello all,
And a big warm hug to all my forum friends, especially Lady K, Linda Mc. & Nancy. I won't promise anything, but I will try to weigh in as often as I can to try and offer my knowledge of MRSA to everyone. And at this point, I feel I'm somewhat of an expert on the subject.

As many of you know, I had a long 16month battle with MRSA in the blood that almost took my life. Within a 52 week period I had been given over 32 weeks of IV antibotic infused twice a day taking almost 2 hrs at a time.

After my last bout, and my blood was not testing possitive for MRSA, it took a good year before I felt I was out of the woods, and well on the way to having a strong, healthy immune system, ready to fight anything. and now, it has been a little over 2 years now, and still MRSA free. But I have been left with a few residual presents, compliments of MRSA.

I suffer from Reflux but is now controlable with herbals, and 3 doses of zantac daily. Before this, I had chronic laryngiti... read more

MRSA in Daycare

I am fairly certain I contracted MRSA 2.5 yrs ago from a daycare child in my care.
I bandaged wounds on his infected fingers, perhaps forgetting gloves, and since I
have severe hand eczema, voila...two months later a small abscess appeared on
my arm. Ever since, I have experienced small boils about one per month, or two
every other month, mainly in my perineum area, and maybe 6 on my hands; over
these past two years a total of probably 18 small boils. Normally I do nothing but
apply tea tree oil. They go away easily on their own and if they burst, I take great
I suspected staph after that first boil appeared, but it was pretty much confirmed
six months later when my small son developed a similar boil near a burn he had,
which we had lanced and cultured to be MRSA positive. He was treated with
Bactrim, and a few months later his Pedi. did a nasal swab which came back
negative for him. He has not had a boil since or any additional signs of MRSA.

So applied garlic directly to my wounds as recommended. But I think I have garlic burns on where I applied the garlic. The skin is dark brown. Is that a garlic burn? It seems like I need to dilute the garlic somehow.

does anyone here know what mrsa does to the brain or neurological structure. what are the scientific facts? how does it affect the brain structure? if it does go to the brain and nervous system. i heard it can affect any system if it becomes systemic or in the blood.

im asking because i got sick from mrsa an agressive form of it that is very difficult to treat. i got sick from it a few months before i was 26 yrs old, now im almost 30 and have been sick for 4 yrs.

i noticed that within weeks of getting the infection as it was getting worse i started to get terrifying symptoms such as not being able to think or concentrate anymore, trouble with my short term memory suddenly. out of nowhere i felt like i was suddenly getting alzheimers at 25 ys old. i felt my mind slipping away and a sudden decline of my mental skills

it took my doctors months to even diagnose me correctly and my mrsa was left untreated for half a year until i got antibiotics, by then it was resistant to every... read more

Crushed garlic can burn skin
Posted by Bob Anderson
Last Reply September 22, 2015 at 16:04
Started November 23, 2011 at 15:38
There is something I would like to make clear about using garlic to fight MRSA and that is that prolonged direct contact with skin can cause first, second and even third degree burns so prolonged direct contact should be avoided.

Just how long is prolonged?

There's no real answer because some garlics are hotter than others and some skin is more sensitive than others and some people are more sensitive than others and it also matters how long it is left on. Generally, the longer left on the greater the chance of skin burning, usually first or second degree burns but third degree is possible with a stronger garlic for a longer time. A few minutes is one thing, a couple of days is another and yet for some people even a few seconds may be too long.

This is the reason we talk in terms of garlic water as that dilutes it greatly and neither the burning sensation nor the physical burning of skin are likely. A study I read showed allicin to still possess enough potency to kill all ... read more

Hi Everyone.

I'm a married 47 year old male and we have a 9 year. Our MRSA
started probably a couple year ago. We kept getting these
abscesses and would go to the doctors where they would drain and
then prescribe antibiotics. This kept going on until the wife got
it so bad one time she had to be hospitalized.

Still no one told us about MRSA.

I had another abscess and went to urgent care. This was the first
time anyone uttered the term MRSA but they also said, "eh, there's
nothing you can do about it. Just take your antibiotics".

This went on and on. Both the wife and I would trade off
infections every few months. Then our daughter started getting
them. Her pediatrician was probably the first to actually give us
some information and suggestions but also echoed the same "nothing
you can do about it" attitude.

The wife got another infection and she was sent to a
dermatologist. She didn't do much but she did at least suggest
bleach baths of no ... read more

MRSA in the urine
Posted by Janet Last Reply October 30, 2008
Started October 29, 2008 at 15:29

My original bout with MRSA was when I contracted it in the hospital from sinus surgery. I was ill for about 6 months and then went on IV Vanco. I just went in to my PCP for a UTI and my urine came back MRSA positive. I can find very little information on MRSA in the urine. I also wonder where else it is my body. I work in a medical facility and I have a newborn grandchild and worry about both constantly being in contact with MRSA and constantly worried about spreading it. The Dr says just to wash wash wash the hands. There are so many questions and so few answers.

Garlic and staph
Posted by Bob Anderson
Last Reply September 9, 2015 at 22:20
Started January 11, 2010 at 21:32
This first post will take four intstallments.

It's hard to know where to start so I think I will start with the most basic information, make a few bold statements and then back up those statements with supporting studies and statements from research scientists.
Crushed raw non-irradiated garlic kills staph; all staph, including MRSA and what's more, staph cannot become immune to crushed raw garlic like it has the pharmaceutical antibiotics.
That's a pretty bold statement but you will soon understand why it is so.
Freshly crushed raw garlic kills all or almost all harmful bacteria, including staph, on contact. One study (Walton, Herbold&Lendegren 1936-1938 - Journal of Food Science) even showed that the vapors alone from nearby crushed raw garlic killed all bacteria, including staph, out to 8" away just from the fumes.

Numerous other studies, such as Abdou et al., 1972 have confirmed that crushed raw garlic kills staph on contact. I can cite many other studies showing ... read more

Please help with this.

My Affordable Home MRSA TreatmentMy

A DIY home treatment for MRSA, is a affordable, natural, readily
available garlic infusion containing allicin. Allicin is produced when
the garlic clove is damaged, and can kill MRSA. You need allicin, the
MRSA killing component, not necessarily stabilized allicin, as one
costly product states. Based on my experience, there is more than
enough allicin, in my homemade garlic brew, to create a dramatic
benefit, despite, what the public is being told. The clove creates the
allicin, all you have to do, is to institute the process, and harvest
it. You need lot's of garlic cloves. I suggest you get the large bags
of peeled garlic cloves, sold by Costco and other stores. A food
processor that chops, some water, ideally distillled, a plastic or
glass bottle, a seive, and refrigerator... that's it. Place a number
of cloves into the processor. Could be 20, 50 etc. Then chop them to
particles. This releases the enzymes in the clove, to create allicin.
