Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is a type of staph bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics called beta-lactams. These antibiotics include methicillin and other more common antibiotics such as oxacillin, penicillin, and amoxicillin. In the community, most MRSA infections are skin infections.
More severe or potentially life-threatening MRSA infections occur most frequently among patients in healthcare settings. While 25% to 30% of people are infected in the nose with staph, less than 2% are infected with MRSA. The CC Formula has shown beneficial results with MRSA infections.
MRSA infections are usually spread by having contact with someone’s skin already having the infection or personal items that they have used, like towels, bandages, or razors that touched their infected skin. These infections are more likely to be spread in places where people are in close contact with each other. An example would be in schools and locker rooms where athletes might share razors or towels.
