MSRI is very serious and nothing to be ignored. Thanks goodness you're getting it taken of.


For those that don't know MSRI is a staph infection that is resistant to most meds. It used to be that it was only seen in hospital settings. Unfortunately, in the past 12-24 months it has become an epidemic outside hospital settings.


It is also known as community-acquired MSRI. If treatment is delayed or it is misdiagnosed, death can occur very quickly.


I recently read about a healthy high school football player that came down with it and almost died. The player did recover but it took several months of rehab. They never did figure out how he was exposed to it.


According to one website:


Community-acquired methicillin-resistant s. aureus, or CA-MRSA, is emerging in daycares, schools and cruise ships. Nearly 500 cases have spread across Alberta and outbreaks have occurred in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.


The infection - a rapidly dividing organism that lives on skin or in noses and secretes enzymes that break down tissue - can enter the body through a nick with gardening shears or a burst pimple...


What is community-acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA):


A type of MRSA infection contracted by someone who hasn't recently been in a hospital, clinic or other health-care setting. Infections have been reported in toddlers in daycare to high school, college and professional-level athletes.


What are the symptoms?


Usually a skin infection such as a boil or abscess. It can start with a pimple or cyst and can be mistaken for a spider bite. The infected area will be red, swollen, warm and sometimes painful, and there may be pus or other drainage. Symptoms of a more serious infection include rash, shortness of breath, fever, chills, chest pain, fatigue, malaise (generally feeling unwell) and headache.
