There is a risk but that is what it is - a risk. The reason is that mrsa often colonizes the nose and could be dispersed to the area area around the mouth and lips and contaminate them with MRSA. Sharing many thangs with an MRSA carrier can be a risk for being a carrier. Not all carriers have live infections. Dave MRSA Today

The MRSA infection may not have been caught in hospital. We often have MRSA on our skin for a short while or resident in our noses with no ill effect. Antibiotics should clear the active infection in the short term. The babymay also lose the infection after treatment as they grow and the the bacteria they have chahges. You need to keep a watchful eye on any cuts or grazes the new mum or baby has in the coming months to ensure that they do not becaome infected. Dave MRSA Today

Dear Susan I am sorry that you have to go through all of this. You do not have to tell people about your condition in the everyday things of life. You are not carrying the condition on a part of your body that makes you highly infective. If you wash your hands after every toilet visit and before meals you will be very low risk as a spreader. You can seek eradication via two methods. Hibiclessns baths can help eradicate bacteria on the skin and there is nasal cream for the nose. Some doctors are loath to prescribe this as people may be reinfected from the same source or a new one and not from their current wound. Many skin infections with a staph component do clear up with little or no treatment which is why health care providers are low key. You however are clearly not one of those cases Dave

Yes but ..... many people carry staph and/or MRSA so there will be other places and times where the child could be exposed. Good hand hygiene often helps everyone as this is often the way that it is transferred. Even if it is there is only a risk of infection - not everyone who carries it gets an infection.

Understanding your MRSA Rash. As MRSA often lives on the skin or in the nose it can be carried for some time before it finds an area of vulnerability to infect. Any activity that breaks or bruises the skin can therefore be an entry point for infection Continue reading

There are many different strains of MRSA. It would be good if they could tell you which strain is circulating in your family so that you can ensure that you are getting the right medication. When chronic MRSA happens there is often a possibility that you can get a nasal cream to help decolonise family members and break the cycle of infection. It should be noted however that some doctors hold back from this because of concerns that this breeds resistance - it does - and that many people are prone to getting a completely new infection in the community anyway. It is worth asking whether you have a family pet who could be a source of MRSA for the rest of the family. Hope that gives some insight Dave Roberts MRSA Infection

Deaths from MRSA mainly occur among over 65s who have bloodstream infections. They are rare among children with skin infection. Have they discussed with a doctor what the cause of reinfection might be Dave MRSA Today

In theory yes, In reality probably no. It is most often transferred via skin/hand contact. Wash you hands thoroughly after cleaning the room and the risk will be very low Dave mrsawatch

It is not a genital std, but the bacteria can be transmitted from skin to skin during intimacy. It often hides in the genital area making transfer more likely. Dave mrsa today

In theory - yes. MRSA often lives in the nasal passage or around the groin and intimacy can cause transference. Simply having it on your skin puts you at risk for an infection but does not mean you will get one. It often is dormant until it finds a cut or graze to infect Dave MRSA Today

The test should show what strain of staph you have - different strains need different drugs. They should have prescribed drugs in the light of that that were active against that strain. You might want to check

1 in 3 people working there will have the SA part of MRSA. It can also cause severe illness but is easier to treat with a wider variety of drugs. Good hand hygiene is vital in a restaurant and will also prevent cross infection of diners with MRSA Dave MRSA Today
