After being treated in the ER at Children's Hospital of Pgh, my daughter aquired MRSA 4 days later. I find it rather odd that she woke up with vaginal discharge (thought to be a yeast infection due to amoxicilian for an ear infetion). A culture was done which came back as "heavy growth MRSA" -*Resistant to Clyndamicin*

Her ER visit was on Sat Jan. 12th. A complete physical was done as well as an IV in her hand to draw blood. The IV remained in place until her test results came back (which were all normal). Her dr. told me that once a person acquires MRSA, it can find it's way out of the body anywhere. Is this true???... or is possible that she could have picked it up from a toilet seat?!

She was treated with Bactrim (which seemed to do the trick). However, on the 7th day of bactrim, she developed a severe allergic reaction and had to be switched to Cipro.

The "sores" on her labia have gone away. However, she is still red and "irritated" looking. The dr.(pediatric infectious disease) said, she is more than likely colonized in her vagina with MRSA.

Tonight, she developed EXTREMELY red skin on her bum. It hurts and she cried when I rubbed lotion on it. It looked like just horribly dry skin. It is also on the lower left side of her torso. It DID NOT feel warm to the touch as cellulitis is suppose to feel. Is there any possibility the MRSA has spread to her buttocks and is about to get worse?

I am so beside myself. I am terrified that the worse is going to happen. The Bactrim seemed to work so well for her. We had to run Cipro for 21 days and the "reddness" is still there. The Bactrim had her almost completely cleared up in the 7 days she took it. I am convinced that she NEEDED bactrim for 20 days.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I am so worried about my little girl. PLEASE HELP!

I'm wondering what happened with your daughter. My 2-year old was just diagnosed with MRSA in the vagina too. Real similar story - antibiotic for ear infection, dishcharge, go to the dr. thinking yeast infection and now on Bactrim.
Please continue your story.

Hi Kim, sorry to hear that about your daughter. I would highly recommend you take a serious consideration to trying Mangosteen. The pericarp in the mangosteen is the worlds richest source of Xanthones. What are Xanthones you ask. It been shown in studies to kill MRSA it's a wondeful tasting juice. Your doughter will love it. Take a look www.InformationOnMangosteen.info

Kim,

Cipro will have absolutely no effect.

DONOT allow her to be given Prednisone, any steriod, or immune suppresant until she is cultured and YOU see the results and they are explained to you. See an Infectious disease doctor IMMEDIATELY, and NOT the one from the hospital.

Medicare now challenges payment for nosocomial complications. The hospital is on the hook for the current cost as well as future treatment.

So sorry to hear that, Kim. Have you ever tried 'Silver Shield' by Nature's Sunshine Products? It's a patented product, and studies have been shown that this 'silver' attacks and kills not only MRSA, but bacteria, viruses, fungus, etc. Check it out on the internet and research it. I also have a video link that explains about it and has before and after pics of a MRSA infection. If you want to see this, then you can email me at c_rullman@yahoo.com
Hope this helps,

Hi Kim ! First of all sorry for the little girl I know how painful and terrifying experience is to deal with mrsa because I had to deal with it myself for about eleven month. Please listen carefully because I want to share with you what I learned during these painful eleven months. My mrsa infection was so bad that I had surgery three times because the wounds grew so big and painful. The first two times the surgeon gave me the wrong antibiotics to wich the bacteria showed resistence in the lab test.The third time I had to go to see the surgeon he sent me to the Infectious Disease Specialist, and boy I am glad he did that.The IDS is the best doctor to deal with Mrsa because this is his field ,he or she has the best tools and the best experience to be successful against this so called superbug. So after he took a sample from the wound and sent it to the lab to find out if it was indeed mrsa and if it was to wich antibiotics the bacteria was sensitive to end to wich antibiotics it was resistent to.Because mrsa is resistent to most of the antibiotics out there it is very important to find out the right antibiotics to treat the wound successfully. In my case it was TRIMETHPRIM/SULFA that did the job. But the Infectious Disease Specialist gave me something else too .He gave me Hibiclens wich is an over the counter liquid antibacterial soap available in any pharmacy and it proven to kill Mrsa bacteria.I have never seen anything like Hibiclens. It works against almost any infection on the skin very effectively,and because Hibiclens I am free of Mrsa for more than two year snow.More than two years I have not used Hibiclens and have not taken any antibiotics Mrsa is gone ,I am free of it now for good thanks to the IDS.Over shower rub the infected area with Hibiclens and rinse it. Use it three times a week at the biginning for two weaks than two times a week for two more week. I find Hibiclens worked best when I rubbed the infected area and left it on for about ten minutes and than rinsed it off.I hope my advice will help your little girl to get rid of mrsa just like I did.

These dam hospitals need to take responsibility for this. The doctors spread a lot of it when they listen with there scope. Remember they work for you tell them to sterilize it and there hands and everything else. I'm so sorry to hear about this it really makes me mad more like pissed off because there is technology out there that kills this on surfaces and is proven I just can not understand why they won't consider it. It blows my mind its called Activepure and its safe. What in the hell is wrong with these hospitals!!,Doctors!!Schools do they think they are so superior that they can't even look at the freaken Scientific data enough is enough!!!

I am 21 and have vaginal MRSA staph. At first I believed it was a Bartheloin cyst until it spreadto grapefruit size and ten cysts all on my right labia I delayed a doctor for a week due to draining the puss filled cysts myself but the kept growing causing me pain too severe to move touch the area or anything last week the cysts were somewhat drained now their completely gone no more grapefruits. I found out three days ago I have MRSA and staph and I am allergic to penicillin I am on bacterium and seeing the CDC soon The bacterium twice a day helps but I am very I'll from the infection. Any advice?
