Keeping You Safe From MRSA
Keeping you safe from MRSA
In recent years, super bugs such as MRSA have been making headlines throughout the US and Canada. MRSA, also known as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium that has been found in the environment. The CDC estimates there have been roughly 94,000 MRSA infections which resulted in 19,000 deaths. The number of MRSA related deaths out numbers the amount of HIV/AIDS related deaths. Knowing how to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting sick from MRSA is extremely important.
If you come into contact with MRSA you need to contact your doctor immediately. Signs of MRSA include an area of skin that's red, painful, swollen, and/or filled with pus; also if you have inflamed skin that is also feverish or you feel sick, contact your doctor immediately.
