If you notice any of the following symptoms, including a rash, moderate to severe headaches, muscular soreness, and a fever, you may have MRSA. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an infection that is transmitted through contact with other infected patients, or through an infected wound; in some cases, other ways of becoming infected exists. There are different types of MRSA infection, including hospital-acquired, also known as HA-MRSA and community-acquired, which goes by the name CA-MRSA. Find out the top 10 treatments of MRSA.
MRSA can cause symptoms that affect the skin, which in many cases can be painful and can cause a certain degree of discomfort. To alleviate pain, use warm compresses to soothe the skin and reduce irritation and swelling. MRSA can cause red bumps to appear on the skin, which can cause redness and irritation. A warm compress can help increase blood flow to the area, killing bacteria and providing relief from the pain. You can soak a clean cloth in water that has been slightly salted; then, apply the warm compress onto the skin and let it rest for around 5 minutes. Repeat as needed.
