Re: Helpful hint for MRSA skin infections

Wow jmw you sure do have a problem with it. I never even heard of it being taken care of with soaks.

My husband went to the hospital 4 years ago with a very bad case of the flu and after 5 days was diagnosed with MRSA. At that point I'll be honest, I never heard of it. Poor guy was a mess between the flu and the MRSA and wound up there for 3 weeks. He was taking 2 oral meds and one IV antibiotic plus he had to inhale some kind of steroid every few hrs. with one of those oxygen masks. They didn't think he was going to make it!...

Glad you caught it in time and know what to do. Thanks for the info. as it is definately news to me. Got to love this board.

Feel better...JJ....
