Re: Helpful hint for MRSA skin infections

Wow! I see you are from Memphis! From what my doctor told me last week, the amount of MRSA in Memphis is higher than the average.....not sure why. This can be a tricky little bug to deal with. I have found that usually the day before it starts, I will not feel good. Along with the skin involvement, it makes me feel bad all over. The biggest thing I have learned is to go to the doctor immediately! Do not delay! The sooner you can get started with treatment, the better. This last round, I woke up with it on a Thursday morning, went to the doctor Friday morning and started treatment that morning. I went back to the doctor Monday and we both agreed that if I had not started treatment Friday, I would have been in the hospital by Monday. Anyway, I just wanted to share what little I have learned. Good Luck...I know it can be hard.
