Re: HELP! 9mthold with MRSA on groin
My heart goes out to you and your precious baby.
I think he will need to be under the care of an Infectious Disease physician. The key would then be to find the "best" one in your city, the one who is most highly recommended and on top of the latest research. I would think when your baby is ready to leave the hospital, they will refer you to an infectious disease doctor, but if they don't, ask for a referral.
I know there are books out there about MRSA, many websites, etc. You want to make sure there is no way he will get re-exposed. Everything needs to be disinfected. Start with items carried by family members and items in your home most likely to harbor the bacteria and go from there. I know it can be transferred around on phones, the bottom of purses, pens, keyboards, shoes, underneath long fingernails... just washing clothing is not enough to kill the bacteria.
That's why I would go to an infectious disease doctor. They probably have a lot of printed information they can give you.
I hope your little one is cured soon.
