MRSA in the blood is it dangerous and is it contagious?

patricia c
very !next to HIV or aids this is the worse problem that keeps growing.this is methacillian resistant staff orious,it means that all the antibiotics related to the penicillin's will not work on this bug.if its in the blood then , they are very sick , high temp.rash,red and swelling,draining wounds.this bug can cause a lot of internal damage.its only dangerous if its blood to blood contact.but look this up don't take my word for it.

it can be dangerous if you have a compromised immune system ( you are taking immuno-supressants or you have a immuno compromising disease i.e. cancer or HIV). and yes it is contagious. "MRSA" is everywhere and it has been around for a long time. The best way to protect yourself is basically to wash your hands and dont come in contact with other people's body fluids. You dont have to live in a bubble.

Tarheelg has got it right. Depending on which MRSA that you are speaking of dictators just how much precaution needs to be taken. Low immune system is a number one contributing factor in contracting MRSA and can be very deadly once it reaches the blood stream. Check with your local CDC (Center for Disease Control) online to get more info on MRSA be it HA or CA....Good Luck, Druski337

Believe it or not, most people carry MRSA in their blood, but their immune system controls it. Lately, more and more people are getting MRSA that is next to impossible to get rid of and control. Yes, it is dangerous, and yes, it is contagious. Enough so that when we get a patient in surgery with MRSA or a history of it, we have to use extra precautionary procedures to prevent us from contracting it, or from passing it to other patients. It is not something to play around with.
