Anyone who would say MRSA is not dangerous is either stupid or lying through their teeth. People are dying from it everyday and it is like a plague, another AIDS. It is picked up from ER's and any medical facility because there has been someone there with it and it wasn't known. It is very easily spread. I know all this because it is in my family and it is horrible and hard to cure, almost impossible. In fact my son-in-law was told by the doctor who is treating him he would be a carrier the rest of his life. Does that not sound dangerous??? If you have to go to any type of medical facility, ER's are the worst, if you have an open sore make sure it is covered with an antibiotic and a bandaage and put Neosporin around your nostrils. That is one of the best breeding places, in the nose hairs.

What do they mean by carrier? I thought they got the sore and through that they where contagious, but once that is gone, they are fine.
