S. aureus (staph) including MRSA can be spread among people having close contact with infected people. MRSA is almost always spread by direct physical contact and not through the air. Spread may also occur through indirect contact by touching objects (e.g., towels, sheets, wound dressings, clothes, workout areas, or sports equipment) contaminated by the infected skin of a person with staph bacteria or MRSA. st as S. aureus can be carried on the skin or in the nose without causing any disease, MRSA can be carried in this way also. This is known as colonization. MRSA infections are usually mild, superficial infections of the skin that can be treated successfully with proper skin care and antibiotics. MRSA, however, can be difficult to treat and can progress to life-threatening blood or bone infections because there are fewer effective antibiotics available for treatment.

MRSA infections occur commonly among persons in hospitals and healthcare facilities. However, as recently reported by Business Week, MRSA can cause illness in persons outside of hospitals and healthcare facilities as well. Cases of MRSA infection in the community have been associated with recent antibiotic use, sharing contaminated items, having recurrent skin diseases, and living in crowded settings. Clusters of skin infections caused by MRSA have been described among injecting drug-users (1,2); aboriginals in Canada (3), New Zealand (4) and Australia (5,6); Native Americans in the United States (7); incarcerated persons (8); players of close-contact sports (9,10); men who have with men (MSM); and other populations (11-17). Most of the transmission in these settings appeared to be from people with active MRSA skin infections. http://www.nwcleangear.com/html/mrsa_info.html

GO EAT A SPICY WING! And I don't want any. No thank you!!

It just depends. We are all very careful at the house not to touch her when she comes home. That stuff is tough ...there is rhyme or reason to it. But it will kill a sick person. Chances are lets say charles since this is his thread. He has wounds...they are going to give him antibiotics because of the nature of the wreck. He is already a healthy guy+antibiotics makes him unlikely to contract it. Plus a wound care center is going to be extra clean compared to a hospital wing.

I don't know the difference between the cleanliness of a wound care center and a hospital.

Charles, are you taking antibiotics?? Cause you better be.

no they didn't recommend antibiotics. just a tetnus shot but I've had that within the last year. it's healing quite fast actually. very red underthe bandages. and my arms are very good. and itchy (which they said is a good sign of healing just don't itch it.)

I never liked hospitals. Plus they are ALWAYS cold and I prefer to be warm. I can't function well when it's cold. I remember being @ Ben Taub Hospital when my uncle had passed away. I was freezing the whole time. I was really upset and really cold.

warm is a breeding ground for germs and bacteria.

That sucks man! I know the little cheese grater looking wound scrubber thing hurts like a bish!! I had to take 2 of my buddies to the hospital on seperate occasions from looping wheelies on 45. Both doing about 70mph or so when they went down. Both got rashed bad and a couple broken bones. Neither had on anything besides a helmet.

Those let me realize how important wearing gear is and how stupid acting an on the freeway is. I was riding behind them normal and just cruising like a responsible and intelligent individual. lol
