Asked in Infectious Diseases
If someone is cured of MRSA after 5 months in the hospital can it come back and is he still infectious?
Yes it can com back. MRSA will stay with you for your whole life and surface at different times. When MRSA is treated it is usually because it has infected a wound. Once the infection has been treated and the pt is released their med history will contain somethingalong the lines of "history of MRSA" signifying that the MRSA may resurface and warning health care providers to take precautions.
