How to Treat a Mild MRSA or Staph Infection: Recognize Symptoms

Nov 27, 2017

CUROXEN First Aid Ointment FemiClear OrganiCare

Discover how to treat and prevent the spread of MRSA and Staph infections, caused by the antibiotic-resistant superbug Staphylococcus aureus. Learn about the importance of early diagnosis, recognizing symptoms such as cellulitis, boils, and abscesses, and using CUROXEN first aid ointment. Understand the crucial steps for proper treatment, including medical diagnosis, professional wound drainage, prescribed antibiotic courses, and regular wound cleaning. Prevent further infection and transmission by maintaining hygiene, changing bandages, disposing of used bandages, and avoiding the sharing of personal items. 

What is Staph?

Staphylococcus aureus (Staph aureus, S. aureus, or SA) is a common bacteria in the nose and on the skin of people.

What is a MRSA infection?

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus is a specific “staph” bacteria that is often resistant to antibiotic treatments. MRSA may cause invasive or life-threatening infections in some people if not treated properly.

MRSA is one of the bacteria listed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a “superbug” resistant to multiple synthetic antibiotics.

How do you contract a MRSA/Staph infection?

MRSA skin infections can be picked up either in common everyday places like gyms or locker rooms, or in hospitals. 

How a Staph or MRSA Infection is Treated:

Step 1: Anytime you have an open wound apply CUROXEN first aid ointment. CUROXEN kills over 5X more bacteria and germs (including Staph, MRSA, and E-coli) than Neosporin or other first aid ointments. (Read the science here)

Step 2:  See a doctor if the wound does not appear to be healing and begins to display the below symptoms. Early MRSA treatment is vital to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body.

What does a Staph or MRSA infection look like?

The skin can be red or a rash with pus-filled pimple or boil. It can open and leak fluid and puss.

MRSA or Staph infections can create any of the following symptoms:

  • cellulitis
  • boils
  • abscesses
  • sty
  • carbuncles
  • impetigo
  • rash

Step 3: Cover the wound with a clean, dry bandage and then wash your hands before you come into contact with other people. Inform medical professionals upon your arrival, so they can act accordingly.

Step 4: Medical professionals will test the infection to diagnose if it is indeed MRSA or Staph. A sample of the pus from the wound, blood, or urine is sent to a microbiology lab to be cultured for S. aureus and MRSA bacteria.

Step 5: After diagnosis, if there is a boil or abscess, the medical professional will drain the puss/fluid using an incision. DO NOT PERFORM THIS AT HOME.

Step 6: Antibiotic treatment is then typically recommended by doctor. Be sure to follow the doctors’ directions to ensure the infection heals properly. If the antibiotic is not taken properly to completion, the MRSA bacteria can become resistant to the medicine.

Step 7: As the infection heals, be sure to clean it regularly. Applying CUROXEN to help kill the bacteria and prevent more bacteria from entering the wound is important. Keep bandaged at all time.

To avoid spreading Staph and MRSA to others, follow these tips:

  • Clean hands often, especially when tending to the wound.
  • Keep wound clean and change bandages regularly.
  • Dispose of used bandages in the trash right away.
  • Avoid sharing personal items, tooth brush, razor, blanket, and clothing.
  • Wash all clothes, lines, and towels with detergent with hot water.
