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.

My fiance' was had a boil on his leg and went to the Hospital back in November 2012. The doctor had to cut his leg in two different places to help release the pressure and drainage associated with the infection. The wound has healed since then, but nothing is better. His leg has these horrible twitches. I CAN SEE HIS LEG TWITCH WITH MY OWN EYES, AND IT SCARES ME TO DEATH! Does anyone know why this is happening? He says it's so painful, and I'm scared because I don't know what to do for him. Please help!

Trying to Understand What Happened

Back in 2012, I had a small bump on my thigh that itched. I scratched it and it
seemed to go away. But, shortly thereafter, it came back with a vengeance. I tried
draining it on my own, but it kept getting worse. I knew without a doubt I needed
help when it was a hot humid August day, and I was wearing four layers of
clothes. Redness had spread around half one side of my thigh. My sister drew a
circle around it and said if it changed by morning to go to the doctor. The
redness spread more, and so I went. The doctor gave me antibiotics and redrew
a circle. Come back tomorrow if no change. It got worse. So, my mother took
me back, where the boil looking center was drained. My mother said they cut
deep into my leg to scrape out all the infection. The small (pencil eraser size) but
deep looking hole was filled with what the doctor called antibiotic tape (he packed
over a foot of tape into it). A shot in the hip and antibiotics followed. Every other ... read more

Cleaning up MRSA

I understand MRSA can live on surfaces, is that correct? If so, for how long? I can't even imagine all the surfaces in my home I have touched between contracting it and being diagnosed.
I am uncertain how often to clean up to know that I have gotten rid of as much of it as I can. Must the MRSA drainage from an open wound touch something or is it simply on the skin and anything or anyone I touch can pick it up? Even pets?
Also, I work at a fabric store, I have touched hundreds of fabric bolts, not to mention cash registers, shelves, items, etc. Can I reinfect myself from that? (And my furniture is of course, fabric, how does one cleanse that?)
I have noticed people mention bleach and also garlic water to clean up the home after an MRSA outbreak. I prefer garlic over bleach. How strong of a compound of garlic and water will work?
I fear the antibiotics won't work after seeing the problems people are having. If they do work, I fear re-occurance and re-infection so I want to try a... read more

Im tristan, 16 years old.
I have had a CR severe,terrible past few months with
a severe and worsening MRSA infection. I first got
an abscess about 3 inches wide on my left eye and
after being given 4 antibiotics it started going
away. As soon as I started this medication Bactrim
it started hurting my back so on the third day it
was bad enough I went to the hospital. I asked for a
MRI or CT scan knowing that this would detect the
pain and thathe an x ray would not see my problem
considering the pain was internal feeling like my
organs almost were in pain. Still they took me off
my Bactrim and sent me off telling me to take
ibuprofen and Tylenol together as needed. Anot her 2
weeks go by and the pain is so bad in my back that I
can't even move out of bed without bursting in tears
from the sheer pain. I go back to the hospital and
the doctor basically sees me for 2 minutes pokes my
back and hurts me and when I move he calls it a

MRSA & Memory Loss
Posted by Incognito
Last Reply February 20, 2017 at 15:17
Started February 2, 2012 at 05:52
In 2007 I developed a systemic MRSA infection that shut down my immune system. About a month later, I developed Mono and was put on a long list of medications and complete bed rest for 2 1/2 months. Over the next three years I continued to have MRSA skin and soft tissue infections and also had pneumonia each year. Finally, in 2011 I only had one minor MRSA infection, but had drug resistant pneumonia twice for a total of four months. I'm glad to be rid of the skin infections; however, my memory seems to be shot.

Do long-term MRSA infections contribute to or cause dementia or alzheimer's type symptoms?

Bacteriophages against MRSA

I know very well phage therapy treatment from Georgia, but I found
much more. Some of them use bacteriophage cocktail
(www.intralytix.com, www.phagoburn.eu) or even phage vaccines against
mrsa (www.immlab.com). Maybe this could be the solution to the
future.

I just wanted to share this because
it might help someone. .i know you'll
think im crazy but people think im
crazy anyways soo here goes..i have
found one thing that stops mrsa pain
and kills boils faster than anything
else I've tried. .and that is old
urine. .just pee in any old glass jar
and let it sit for a few days the
longer the better..it stinks terrible
but it works. .soak Bandana in it and
wrap the urin soaked bandanna around
wher the pain is and the pain stops
almost instantly. Also rub it on the
boils as often as you can and do not
use soap to wash the boils only urin
and rinse with garlic water..I
promise it helps alot especially if
you are poor and uninsured.

most people on this forum have the "normal" form of mrsa which is found in hospitals.
but there are many agressive strains which are genetically altered forms

an agressive form is found in "ICE" users,Ice being a form of metamphetamine produced by genetically alter bacteria.this drug can only be produced in a sophisticated laboratory.
it is this form that continues to be be genetically modified.

currently "they" have produced strains of mrsa tha induce atrial fibrillation, heart attack, stroke as well as tissue eating strains and strains that turn your skin into leather and infect etire muscle groups.

mrsa is being added to marijuana as a delivering system ."they " have also created throat viruses that carrying the mrsa into your system. this method of delivery is used for introducing atrial fibrillation, heart attacks and strokes.

I've had several outbreaks on my forehead over the last few years. I've been given
bactrim and been sent on my way. This time with a new doctor I was prescribed:

Doxycycline (take 2x daily)
Mupirocin ointment (2x daily)
Clindamycin ointment (2x daily)
Hibaclens (wash area with hibiclens daily)

I'm at a loss as to how I am supposed to put 2 different ointments on the area 2x
daily. Has anyone had experience with these ointments? With doxycycline?
Because this is on my face above my eyebrow id appreciate any advice or tips. I
was thinking about just using the mupirocin until its healed and then using the
clindamycin as a preventative measure. I've been given several refills and was
told to continue using the ointments forever!

My Infectious Disease Specialist Says......

Started March 31, 2006 at 08:08
I have a post from around 3/23 called Misdiagnosis and Maintenance if you'd like to get background regarding my story.

I had a one hour consultation with my ID, and wanted to know if I should get vanco rather than septra in order to completely knock out mrsa. I had a horrific break out on my face last month. The ID was emphatic in stating that with my MRSA (on the skin, not in the blood or lungs) vanco is NOT effective for decolonization. He said vanco should be used in many different situations, but not this type. There are patients that do vanco and may never have another break out, but they are still decolonized.

Here's some hope for those of you suffering regular/constant boil problems: The ID, who is the chief of infectious disease at a huge hospital, states that he has had patients decolonize, and that the vast majority of his patients, when practicing this regiment, have never had mrsa breakouts return, whether they are decolonized or not. Here's what he says to... read more

Critique My Garlic Bath Method
Posted by Brian J

I ask for the critique as I'm having mixed results.
Been reading the garlic (and many other) post on this forum for a
few weeks now. After having molluscum then staph for about a year
and a half now (and trying multiple clinical and holistic
strategies) I figure it's time to give garlic a shot.
I bought 7 bulbs of music toughneck garlic from a local organic
shop that grows it themselves, it was all they had left. The
'music' strand of garlic seems hot when I cut a piece off and put
it to my tongue.

I actually smash the garlic with a mallet and let it sit for
about 45 minutes before adding it to water to release the allicin
(I use about 60% of a decent size bulb per tub full). I don't have
a tub to soak in so I bought a 50 gallon plastic container (2 of
them for sturdiness). So I add the smashed garlic to the tub I've
filled with water and sit in it twice a day for 1 hour per
session. Areas I can't easily submerge I will keep damp with a
rag.
