MRSA: MRSA is methicillin resistant staph aureus. It is not as rare as it used to be. Due to over utilization of antibiotics, many harmless bugs became smarter and figured how to stay alive despite taking powerful antibiotics.

My boyfriend has MRSA and I am wondering what to wash his linens with to kill the bacteria? Also if they're letting him out of the hospital do you think it is okay for me and my 3 year old to spend the night at his house or are we still at risk?
The : The best disinfectant to combat MRSA is household bleach. The bleach must be mixed with water prior to cleaning (90% water, 10% bleach). There is a difference between your boyfriend having a wound that is MRSA positive versus him being a carrier of MRSA (on skin and in nose). Regardless here are some things to protect yourself and your child: wash hands regularly with soap and water (not antibacterial soap) don't share personal items like towels don't handle any bandages of the affected person if applicable if he is just a carrier then your risk is fairly low if you follow the above, especially hand washing. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
