What I wish someone had told us at the beginning
If someone had told us at the beginning: ***
I. *****Swab your noses (everyone in the family) with 'bactroban" (a heavy duty neosporin) 2xs a day for 7 - 10 days!***
(We now do this monthly, to be sure, with a homeopathic treatment spray of 'silver sol')
II. *****Wash all the bodies in your home with an strong antibacterial wash (hibiclens) at least twice a week.***
(We now do this with a homeopathic bath of bath salts mixed with tea tree oil, and lavander, and wash with a essential oil body wash for adults and older children, at least twice weekly.)
If someone had told us these two things, at the beginning, I think we could have avoided a lot of heartache.
If someone has MRSA at your house, and not everyone had contracted it, BY ALL MEANS talk to your doctor about everyone in the house doing this ASAP. They told us this information after many months. Whooops. Wish they had given us precautions earlier. Not useful to hold that information back. Treat it as worst case scenario, instead best, and people will come out ahead.
Once this bacteria is in the blood stream, therein lies the difficult battle. If, then, you can kill it in your nose and on your skin before it enters the bloodstream, you can avoid heartache.
IF SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSE HAS MRSA, AND OTHERS DO NOT, PLEASE TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT THESE PRECAUTIONS!
Again, once this bacteria is in the blood stream, therein lies the difficult battle. If, then, you can kill it in your nose and on your skin before it enters the bloodstream, you can avoid heartache.
Hospitals now swab peoples noses for MRSA when admitted, and they when they are released; because that is a VERY common place for people to be colonized with this bacteria. Some people can have it up their nose and have no symptoms, but can give it to others unknowingly.
WISH, WISH, WISH we had known this at the beginning. I really feel it would have helped others in the household not aquire this!!!
