I caught MRSA from a Mc Donald's play place.

Last year, during the hottest part of the month I reluctantly took my daughter to the Mc donald's play place. I made sure we washed up after we were done.

Two days later I developed a burning itching rash on my upper arm. I thought it was a spider bite, but by the next day, it had changed and I began running a mild temp.

I was diagnosed with MRSA and immediately given medication. First a shot in the dr office, then 2 weeks worth of antibiotic.

It beat it back for about a week, then it returned. I cycled through 2 months worth of antibiotics that were not taking it away. I began a regimen of silver and applying oil of oregano (diluted) every day and this was the only thing that finally got rid of it. It took a long time too. MRSA is very hard to get rid of.

I'm not saying that my regimen would help anyone else but it was the only thing that worked for me. My heart goes out to these kids.

all collodial silver will do is turn them blue.
2nd line.

Can you bleach the infected area? Its what we do in the gym.

Kills a lot of skin bacteria.

I've been taking in colloidal silver as needed for illness for 8 years now. Not blue, have brown skin.

I'm not touting it's use here as some miracle drug, but when it comes down to it, I'd trust it over anything else for myself and family when it comes to viruses and bacteria.

I hope the kids get some relief for sure. As for "no one knowing" or hearing about this, as an owner of a security company that services 3 hospitals I can assure all of you that the last thing any hospital wants is for the public they serve to learn the CDC has been called in. Including that the hospital is having a hard time with any health problem whatever it may be. Hospitals are notorious for keeping things secret when it comes to public perception regarding their performance, quality of healthcare / inadaquate health care performance etc. To those of us who are well aware of how hospitals operate, hearing that some other people on here have not heard anything in the affected hospital's area does not surprise me at all. Including that some people who are "connected" may not have heard anything either, the layers that a hospital will insulate an issue within is very deep.

The person that informed me of this is on the hospital staff and has been warned that because of HIPPA they will lose their job for exposing the issue.

HIPPA doesn't apply here. only if patient identifiers are included.

otherwise, tabulated statistics (like you find right on CDC website, or through MMWR) could never legally be published.

Hmm...no more MRSA than usual at the MED or Methodist here in Memphis.

Although this is very serious and sad to see children infected, the bacteria itself isnt contagious. Ironically many people that are infected with staf bacteria get it whilst in hospital. Not all but many do.

''If MRSA is so resistant to many antibiotics, how is it treated or cured?

As stated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

•"First-line treatment for mild abscesses is incision and drainage."



•"If antibiotic treatment is clinically indicated, it should be guided by the susceptibility profile of the organism."
Fortunately, most MRSA still can be treated by certain specific antibiotics (for example, vancomycin [Vancocin], linezolid [Zyvox], and others, often in combination with vancomycin). Some CA-MRSA strains are susceptible to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim), doxycycline, and clindamycin, although reports suggest clindamycin resistance is increasing rapidly. For MRSA carriers, mupirocin antibiotic cream can potentially eliminate MRSA from mucous membrane colonization. Studies suggest mupirocin is much more effective than other topical antibiotics such as bacitracin. ''

If this is happening in Middle Tennessee...and it's happening to children...then they are at Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital.....they may have been admitted to another local hospital some in the area...but they for sure would have been transferred there.....If its true all we have to do is have a walk around the children's hospital until we get warm....if it's true they wouldn't let us close.

So Melissa....why don't you drive over there and have a look around?

My church has a nursing home ministry.One of the homes
is a really nice,upscale facility.In less than a year,this home
has had at least 2 cases of mrsa.I was under the impression
the patients contracted the mrsa at a local hospital.
I have only read your opening post.I do wonder on how clean
are our hospitals?

I actually think this is about the e-coli tainted lettuce.
Here's the CDC link.

She said they were an hour outside of Nashville so can't be Vandy unless, like you said, they have been transferred. Maybe they can't be transferred due to being quarantined. Vandy would be the best place for them to be though.

Thanks for posting Melissa. I'm in Mid-Tn, have a child too so keep us informed please.

I am a survivor of MRSA. I had a double bowel resection and contracted it in the hospital. It was a new anti-biotic resistant strain also. I spent a month and half in a coma in ICU. Everything they gave me was "experimental". Not sure exactly what all it was, but I know that I can never have the same medicine again. I actually died for 7 minutes. They put me in some special roto-bed. When I finally came to, couple months later, the doctors told me that they had no idea why I was still alive. They told me that it was NOT any of the medicine or anything else that they did. I had a doctor from Atlanta flown in to Columbus Ohio to treat me. Yep! The CDC was in charge of treating me. I survived but have alot of complications.

It's not a virus. It's a bacterium. Big difference. The treatment regemin is totally different. Every virus is resistent to antibiotics.

Could this member's prediction be coming true?!



jrmcleod said:

Biological Attack

Information gets released to a news agency of a new bacteria/virus that has never been discovered before, this bacteria/virus is completely unknown and highly evolved as far as bacteria/viruses can be. It is suspected as a terrorist attack because it has not been documented and the severity of it.
