Prevention of MRSA - Antibiotic-Resistant “Staphylococcus aureus” Skin Infections
A huge number of people are being diagnosed with MRSA (skin infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus - staph bacteria) that are resistant to many known and previously used antibiotics (the drugs that kill bacteria). These resistant strains of staph are commonly known as “MRSA” (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus).
Staph bacteria are most often found in the nasal passages and on the skin of people. Most of the time, staph carried in the nose or on the skin does not cause infection. When it does, it usually causes minor infections, such as boils or abscesses. However, sometimes staph can cause more serious infections such as pneumonia, joint, and bloodstream infections. These are serious infections and require immediate treatment.
Staph infections often begin when staph bacteria enter the body through an injury to the skin, such as a cut or graze or surgical proceedure. Symptoms of a staph skin infection include redness, warmth, swelling, tenderness of the skin and boils or blisters. Here are a few pictures of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Staphylococcus aureus infections: MRSA Pictures.
The Spread Of Staph
Even the cleanest person can get a staph infection, which makes prevention quite difficult. Staph can rub off the skin of an infected person and onto the skin of another person when they have prolonged skin to skin contact. Staph from an infected person can also get onto a commonly shared item or surface and then get onto the skin of the person who touches it next. Examples of commonly shared items are towels, benches in saunas or hot tubs and athletic equipment - in other words, anything that could have touched the skin of a staph infected person can carry the bacteria to the skin of another person.
Preventing Staph Infections
Clean your hands and skin often. Spray with The New Silver Solution. Avoid prolonged skin-to-skin contact with anyone you suspect could have a staph skin infection. Do not share personal items (e.g. razors, towels, etc.) with other persons and keep your towels and clothes clean. Clean items that you share with other people (e.g. towels, razors, athletic equipment) before you use them. These all all basic MRSA prevention measures.
Actions To Take If You Think You Have A Staph Infection
If you suspect that you might have a staph skin infection, consult your healthcare provider as soon as possible. Early treatment can help prevent the infection from getting worse. Be sure to follow all the directions your healthcare provider gives you, even when you start to feel better. If you are prescribed antibiotics, finish all of the doses because incomplete treatment of staph infections can lead to antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
The New Silver Solution can be taken with antibiotics, in fact, tests have proven that using The New Silver Solution in conjunction with antibiotics enables deeper and more penetrative ability in killing staph bacteria.
If my healthcare provider has told me that I have an antibiotic-resistant staph (MRSA) skin infection, what can I do to keep others from getting infected?
Please take the following steps to prevent the spread of antibiotic-resistant staph skin infection to others:
1. Treat area with The New Silver Solution. Keep the infected area covered with clean, dry bandages. Pus, Mucus and drainage from an infected wound is very infectious.
2. Thoroughly wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water, especially after changing bandages or touching the infected skin. Throw away used dressings promptly and spray your hands with The New Silver Solution.
3. Regularly clean and disinfect your bathroom and personal items. Wash soiled towels, bedding and clothes with hot water. Bleach when possible. Drying bedding and clothes in a hot-air dryer, rather than air-drying also helps kill bacteria. Wipe down surfaces with The New Silver Solution.
4. Inform any healthcare providers who treat you, that you have a history of an antibiotic-resistant staph (MRSA) skin infection and that you are using The New Silver Solution to fight the infection.
5. Ensure that you take The New Silver Solution internally, on a daily basis.
6. Do not share razors, towels or similar items with other people.
If you have questions about MRSA, please talk with your health care provider. Most Doctors and especially Surgeons, will recommend the use of The New Silver Solution.
Staphylococcal food poisoning
Staphylococcal food poisoning is a gastrointestinal illness. It is caused by consuming foods that have been contaminated with toxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus bacterium. The two most common ways for food to be contaminated with Staphylococcus bacterium are:
1). Through contact with food workers who carry the bacterium.
2). Through contaminated milk and cheeses - Dairy products.
Staphylococcus tolerant to salt and can grow in salty foods like bacon and hams. As the bacterium multiply in food, they produce toxins that can cause illness. Staphylococcal toxins are also heat resistant and therefore cannot be destroyed by cooking. Hand-made foods pose the highest risk of contamination with Staphylococcus aureus and subsequent toxin production because they require no cooking. Sliced meat, Puddings, Pastries and Sandwiches are just a few examples of contaminated foods that have caused Staphylococcal food poisoning.
Staphylococcal toxins are very fast acting and can cause illness in as little as 30-40 minutes. Normally, symptoms will develop within an hour to six hours after consumption of the contaminated food. Typical symptoms are: nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea. The illness is normally mild and in most cases, patients recover after a few days. But, as in all cases of Staphylococcus infections, the bacterium can cause more severe illness.
Toxin-producing Staphylococcus aureus can be identified in stools or in vomit. Toxins can be detected in food. Signs and symptoms make up much of the diagnosis of staphylococcal food poisoning. Laboratory testing for the toxin producing bacterium is not usually done in individual cases. Laboratory testing is usually reserved for outbreaks that involve several persons and may pose a health hazard to others.
Staphylococcal food poisoning usually causes a brief illness. The best treatment for symptoms are rest, plenty of fluids and new silver solution ingestion, to kill off the Staph. aureus bacterium. This also prevents susceptible patients, such as the young and the elderly, from developing more severe illness, which might require intravenous therapy and care in a hospital.
Please note that antibiotics are useless in treating this illness. The toxin is not affected by antibiotics and patients with this illness are not contagious. Toxins are not transmitted from one person to another.
Staphylococcal food poisoning prevention measures...
It is important to prevent the contamination of food with Staphylococcus before the toxin can be produced.
Wash hands and under fingernails vigorously with soap and water before handling and preparing food.
Do not prepare food if you have a nose or eye infection.
Do not prepare or serve food for others if you have wounds or skin infections on your hands or wrists.
Keep kitchens and food-serving areas clean and sanitized.
If food is to be stored longer than two hours, keep hot foods hot (over 140°F) and cold foods cold (40°F or under).
Store cooked food in a wide, shallow container and refrigerate as soon as possible.
Staphylococcal toxins could also be used as a biological agent. Either by contamination of food and water, or by aerosolization and inhalation. Breathing in low doses of staphylococcal enterotoxin B may cause fever, cough, difficulty breathing, headache, and some vomiting and nausea. High doses of the toxin have a much more serious effect and can be fatal.
