Mrsa Throat Symptoms
I had MRSA twice under arm in '10. Now minor sore throat for 2 weeks. No other symptoms. Allergy meds/amoxicillin not helping. Just moved to OH. MRSA?
I'm a nurse aide and I've was working with a resident. He had mrsa and I was not aware of it. The nurse said it was airborne. Now my throat hurts,weak
No worries!: As a nurse's aide, you have been exposoed to MRSA many times before. It's all over the place in hospitals and in many patients, including many without visible evidence of infection. That a particular resident is a carrier doesn't increase your risk. And MRSA doesn't cause sore throat or weakness. If still concerned, speak with your supervisor or discuss with the infection control team. ...Read more
I have had 3 bouts of mrsa, face n throat (along w cellulitis), once in lip absess and once in neck absess. Will this be a continual problem for me?
Try decolonization : It could be a recurrent problem as you are probably colonized with mrsa. See your doctor about an attempt at decolonization with Bactroban Nasal ointment, hibiclens soap shower and shampoo and possibly one of several antibiotics that obtain high nasal secretion levels such as minocycline, septra, or rifampin. Intimate contacts should have nasal MRSA screens and decolonization if positive. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Depends: It depends on where your infection was. All you said is that you have mrsa. You didn't say where the infection was and how it originally affected you. If it somehow involves your head and face and you're having eye swelling then absolutely you need to go see your doctor as soon as possible. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
