Staphylococcus aureus is a common bacterium found on the skin of healthy people. It is responsible for infections ranging from superficial to systemic. Staphylococcus aureus resistant to the antibiotic methicillin are referred to as Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The proportions of both hospital acquired and community acquired infections caused by MRSA have steadily been increasing worldwide. Initially staphylococcal infections were treated using penicillin. But over the years, resistance to penicillin developed, so methicillin was the next drug of choice. Unfortunatly certain strains (MRSA) have now developed resistance to methicillin also. Patients with breaks in their skin due to wounds, indwelling catheters or burns are those with certain risk of developing MRSA infection.
Symptoms in serious cases may include fever, lethargy and headache. MRSA can cause UTI, pneumonia, toxic shock syndrome and even death. Spread of MRSA infections can be controlled to a great extent by maintaining personal hygiene after interaction with an MRSA infected person.
