A disease that may be a staph infection that starts with the letter m?
an infection that is possible staph related - can be carried by anyone - starts with the letter m - what is the name - sputum culture showed the infection.

try mononucliosis ( mono) the kissing disease

the answer that you are looking for is called MRSA. it short for methicillian resistant staph aureus. people that are debilitated or have frequent trips to the hospital or nursing home can get it. when pt are admitted to the hospital that i work in and have been in before or come from a nursing home we swab their nares for MRSA. if they are positive they are put on precautions and are given muprocin ointment to the inside of both of their nares for 5 days. after that they are test on 3 separate occasions. if they come back clean they are considered free of MRSA. it is found in sputum, and wounds. unfortunately with doctors giving antibiotics for every little sniffle it has come to this, where the bugs we are trying to kill has become more powerful and resistant to the medication that we are trying to use to destroy it. that is why when a doctor gives a prescription for an antibiotic it is necessary to take it until it is finished regardless if the patient feels better earlier. you may feel better but the infection has not been erradicated and it kind of morphs to become stronger than the antibiotic. Vancomycin is the drug of choice along with zyvox right now to destroy MRSA. hope this is not too much info.

MRSA- it's a type of staph inection. People get it in places they come together. Used to be mostly old-age homes. Now it's carried in football locker rooms and other places with healthier people.

It could be Morgellons Disease you are thinking of. There is no known cure for this right now, but I understand there is a lot of research going on to find the cause and cure. If you mean MRSA, that is an Antibacterial resistant form of Staphylcoccus Aureus. Not a good thing. Many people have tested positive for MRSA and later found their symptoms to be that of Morgellons, a very scary, undiagnosable disease that has no known cause or cure. Morgellons Disease manifests itself in many forms that mimic other diseases. Most likely it is MRSA since there to date is not any test available to diagnose Morgellons Disease. The CDC and the NIH (National Institute of Health) in Bethesda, Maryland are both looking into Morgellons and hopefully there will be some kind of test available soon. If it is MRSA, be very aware that it is extremely contageous so keep everything CLEAN!!! If your doctor has isolated the area of infection, some natural treatments are available to kill the staph bacteria. Tea Tree Oil is very effective in killing Staph, Strep, E.Coli, Fungus, Viruses, and Candida Albicans to name just a few. Talk with your health care provider and if possible, drink 6 to 8 cups of Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree Leaves) tea, which can be found in many natural and health food stores and on the internet as well. Good Luck to you! This is a nasty condition, but the good news for you is that it most likely is not Morgellons, Morgellons leaves open lesions that don't heal, chronic fatigue, and itching and stinging sensations on the skin as well as a crawling sensation as if the person had some kind of bugs under the skin.

Is it mersa your looking for?

Menengitis or menancocous?

MRSA or methicyllin resistant staph aureus is likely what you're asking about. I read in my infection control newsletter for work that there are more instances of it recently than in past years.

Angie D

It is called MRSA... which means methacillin resistant staph aureus..... resistant to Pencillin or their derivitives....


Probably meningitis:

Staphylococcus aureus (which is occasionally given the nickname golden staph) is a bacterium, frequently living on the skin or in the nose of a healthy person, that can cause illnesses ranging from minor skin infections (such as pimples, boils, and cellulitis) and abscesses, to life-threatening diseases such as pneumonia, meningitis, endocarditis, Toxic shock syndrome (TSS), and septicemia. Each year some 500,000 patients in American hospitals contract a staphylococcal infection. It is a spherical bacterium. It is abbreviated to S. aureus or sometimes referred to as Staph aureus in medical literature, and should not be confused with the somewhat similarly named streptococci which are also medically important.

Mr. x

morgellons disease?

MRSA-Methicillin Resistant Staph A. Pronounced "Mersa". ?

Well if you are culturing sputum, it shouldn't be meningitis! More likely to be pneumonia.

The type of staph beginning with M - Doc8 is right

MRSA for Multi Resistant Staph Aureus

(some people call it Methicillin Resistant...)
