Staph Skin Infections on Rise in US
AP News
2006-08-18

A once-rare drug-resistant germ now appears to cause more than half of all skin infections treated in U.S. emergency rooms, say researchers who documented the superbug's startling spread in the general population.

Many victims mistakenly thought they just had spider bites that wouldn't heal, not drug-resistant staph bacteria. Only a decade ago, these germs were hardly ever seen outside of hospitals and nursing homes.

Doctors also were caught off-guard - most of them unwittingly prescribed medicines that do not work against the bacteria.

"It is time for physicians to realize just how prevalent this is," said Dr. Gregory Moran of Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, who led the study.

Another author, Dr. Rachel Gorwitz of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said: "I think no one was aware of the extent of the problem."

Skin infections can be life-threatening if bacteria get into the bloodstream. Drug-resistant strains can also cause a vicious type of pneumonia and even "flesh-eating" wounds.

The CDC paid for the study, published in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine. Several authors have consulted for companies that make antibiotics.

Researchers analyzed all skin infections among adults who went to hospital emergency rooms in 11 U.S. cities in August 2004. Of the 422 cases, 249, or 59 percent, were caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Such bacteria are impervious to the penicillin family of drugs long used for treatment.

The proportion of infections due to MRSA ranged from 15 percent to as high as 74 percent in some hospitals.

"This completely matches what our experience at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital has been," said Dr. Buddy Creech, an infectious-disease specialist whose hospital was not included in the study. "Usually what we see is a mom or dad brings their child in with what they describe as a spider bite that's not getting better or a pimple that's not getting better," and it turns out to be MRSA.

The germ typically thrives in health-care settings where people have open wounds and tubes. But in recent years, outbreaks have occurred among prisoners, children and athletes, with the germ spreading through skin contact or shared items such as towels. Dozens of people in Ohio, Kentucky and Vermont recently got MRSA skin infections from tattoos.

The good news: MRSA infections contracted outside a hospital are easier to treat. The study found that several antibiotics work against them, including some sulfa drugs that have been around for decades. A separate study in the journal reports the effectiveness of Cubicin, an antibiotic recently approved to treat bloodstream infections and heart inflammation caused by MRSA.

However, doctors need to test skin infections to see what germ is causing them, and to treat each one as if it were MRSA until test results prove otherwise, researchers said.

"We have made a fundamental shift in pediatrics in our area" and now assume that every such case is the drug-resistant type, Creech said.

And, doctors need to lance the wound to get rid of bacteria rather than relying on a drug to do the job.

"The most important treatment is actually draining the pus," Gorwitz said. Many times that is a cure all by itself, she said.

The study was done in Albuquerque, N.M.; Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C.; Kansas City, Mo.; Los Angeles; Minneapolis; New Orleans; New York; Philadelphia; Phoenix; and Portland, Ore.

Re: Staph Skin Infections on Rise in US
suppose staph has become resistant because of antibacterial soaps?

Re: Staph Skin Infections on Rise in US
use hydrogen peroxide on the staph, it really works.
if you can get any type of silver cream (tetrasil is good) then use that too. silver and hydrogen peroxide kill the staph. i have had 2 staphs in the past 2 years and recently one has been trying to come back under my nose. i can tell because that area gets this weird tingly feeling and if you apply too much pressure it kind of hurts. i dab that area of my skin with hydrogen peroxide and in a couple days its gone. it kills it before it can form into a big giant puss filled boil.
i had one under my left nostril last year. i didn't know about the hydrogen peroxide at that time. it was the worst pain i have ever felt. it felt like someone was smashing my face in with a sledge hammer 24/7. the pressure the staph was creating on my face and skull and brain was almost too much. i normally have a really good skin, so i dont know what is causing these staphs.
someone said gray goo (chemtrails) i seriously wouldn't doubt it.

Re: Staph Skin Infections on Rise in US
This is worse than MRSA and already on the rise in hospitals:

Also another infection brought by our soldiers from the middle east. A brief forum read:
[link to www.nhindia.net]

Also MRSA is becoming viral. Meaning airborne...you can catch it like a cold and it's causing respiratory problems now. It's mutated.

Re: Staph Skin Infections on Rise in US
if it's true MRSA, hydrogen peroxide won't kill it.

colloidal silver and oil of oregano will
also speeds recovery to raise ph level with Vitamin C

MRSA is horrible!!! I have been treating mine with colloidal silver, tea tree oil (topically), iodine and Milk of Magnesia (topically....see www.earthclinic.com). Also using Hibicleanse. They say it is now in our oceans. People please be careful!!

Re: Staph Skin Infections on Rise in US
Staph wasn't a problem until EPA banned hexachlorophene in cleaning products.. Remember PhisoHex>?

Coincidence? I think not.... banned in all products by 1990 or so. MRSA appeared shortly afterward.

Discuss.

Re: Staph Skin Infections on Rise in US
I have a family member on life-support right now because of the treatment for this.

They were given a "new", or maybe experimental drug. They said that it was so powerfull, that it could only be used for 48 hours or some short time-limit.
It caused a stroke and coma.

So--if someone you know gets this and they are offered a new powerfull drug that can only be used for a short time, BE CAREFULL.
