MRSA is "methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus." sometimes known as Multiple-Resistant Staphylococcus-Aureus. It's a term to describe many strain of the bacteria. It is resistant to a number of antibiotics. This bacteria lives on the surface of ALL of our skin and is usually harmless. Most people have a strong immune system and can fight off Staphylococcus auerus, but people with poor immune systems (due to a disease) cannot and therefore if the this person with the weakened immune system has a cut, open raw wound (bed sores included) they can contact this.

Straphylococcus aureus can harm those that have gone through heart or hip surgery. It can also cause oils, abscesses, impetigo, septic wounds, heart-valve problems and Toxic shock syndrome. It also can result in death. Antibiotics is the usual treatment.

If you were healthy before then chances are your immune system saved you and carries on. MRSA is mostly picked up in hospitals where the patients are ill. Some nurses or doctors that are over-worked and they aren't eating well could have a lowered immune system.

It's a good thing to take antitoxidants in vegetables, Pomegranate juice, etc., get plenty of rest and DON'T SKIP MEALS!
