Re: MRSA & Neurology
MRSA is a resistant strain of staph. Usually if caught early it is highly treatable with quinalins or sulfa drugs. It has been known to become septic and requires IV intervention if this is diagnoised. there is also a nasal spray available containing bactrim that has helped.
Not knowing what you mean about neuro effects, I hesitate to address until more facts are known. As a very general statement, Ive not known of MRSA causeing neuro problems but that doesn't mean in couldn't happen I suppose.
A culture and sensativity would be a good starting point and a blood test, possibly a cbc to see if infection is going on. Defenatley talk to your local doctor or urgent care. Most skin presentations start as red pimple like lession and grow into open ulcers, only to heal and appear elsewhere, it usually is highly contagious by direct contact with the drainage. Use good hand washing tech, and avoid drinking or eating out of unsterilized dishes and eating utinsils. IE hot soapy water or dish washer.
