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

Positive today for MRSA in my nose very sore throat chronic cough headache puffy sore scalp can this all be related to the spread of untreated mrsa?
Not likely: Mrsa colonization by itself causes no problems, but puts you at risk for invasive disease if you have major events, like surgery. Mrsa is an aggressive pathogen, so it isn't likely the cause of chronic sore throats or headaches. Unnecessary treatment of MRSA colonization leads to other problems like increased resistance to other antibiotics as well. ...Read more
