MRSA Notes Loves Perez

perez-hilton-mrsaPerez Hilton is my secret addiction – my break in the busy days. Love him or hate him, you can love him today for bringing some attention to MRSA to his monstrously wide audience. He is reporting about the prevalence of MRSA in the Lynwood County Jail where his friend Paris Hilton happens to be for the next 20 or so days. Less with good behavior. ;)

Perez, you should know that prisons are not the only place you can get MRSA, it is out there in the community, in our gyms and in our schools, not to mention all of our hospitals. Thanks for bringing some attention to this important issue – the prisons definitely have a huge problem. I have had more heartfelt letters from mothers, wives and children of prisoners with MRSA than you can imagine – it breaks my heart. And good luck to Paris – as badly as she is treated in the media and elsewhere, I like her and think they absolutely have misread her completely. That includes you, Marshall. ;) And I think she is going to learn a lot from her current situation.

If you are sensitive to offensive language, don’t check out Perez’s link above, but if you loves you some good celebrity humor, you will love Perez. Wait – you already read him, I’m sure. ;) We have lots more about MRSA in prisons at MRSA Notes, so check it out too.

    I am sooo addicted to Perez Hilton, and his catty gossip. He is the only reason I know who any celebrities are.

    Without him, I wouldn’t have anything to talk about with my coworkers (other than work related stuff…and that just isn’t any fun).

    I am glad to know that he is bringing awareness to MRSA. It’s an important topic.

    Now that’s just one more reason to love him.

  2. Thanks Laura – good to know I am not the only one pacing the floors waiting for the next update. LOL Don’t tell my bosses, they think I work hard. ;)

    *HOW I KICKED MRSA*

    NOTE: EVERYTHING THAT I AM STATING IN THESE PARAGRAPHS IS ONLY MY OWN ADVICE. I AM NOT A DOCTOR, THIS IS JUST WHAT WORKED FOR ME. I TOOK THE ADVICE OF DOCTORS, WHAT I SEARCHED ONLINE AND RANDOM THOUGHTS AND PUT THEM TO THE TEST. LUCKILY, ALL OF THIS WORKED FOR ME AND I WISH I WOULD HAVE HAD SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO READ IN THE BEGINNING. THESE ARE ONLY MY OWN SUGGESTIONS. I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU TRYING THEM, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE.

    *Antibiotics. I have been prescribed BACTRIM and also CLINDAMYCIN at different times.

    *HIBICLENS cleanser. This is an antiseptic/antimicrobial skin cleanser. It is a bright red liquid that comes in an 8 oz. teal colored plastic bottle. It should be found over the counter at your pharmacy. Use as a body scrub (best to avoid face & genitalia) daily for 2 weeks straight.

    *MUPIROCIN ointment. This is a prescription antibiotic ointment (comes in a small tube) to put on the skin. Put it on your MRSA breakouts as soon as you notice them coming and it should shrink them so that you don’t have to open them up and drain them. This will save you a lot of pain. Also, use a q-tip to apply a thin layer under your nose. Morning and night unless you shower or wash your face throughout the day, reapply. This will make an invisible barrier to help reduce the chance of staph entering your nose. Try your hardest to keep your fingers away from your nose at all times. Also, at night I used a nail brush and scrubbed under my finger nails with HIBICLENS then used a q-tip to apply a thin layer of MUPIROCIN under my finger nails since staph lives under your nails.

    *Wash your hands like crazy and keep a bottle of hand sanitizer in your purse/pocket.

    *One ER doctor told me never to cover a breakout because it needs to breathe. That’s crazy; you do not want anyone else to come into contact with an active breakout. Use a band-aid/bandage. You will find that you may hear many different things from many different doctors. There are so many different strains and they are rapidly growing so not everyone is up to speed on what works and what should be done.

    *I cannot stress this enough… DO NOT SHARE RAZORS!!! I believe this is how I got MRSA, by sharing my boyfriend’s razor. If you are close to someone else that has MRSA, the two of you can keep giving it back and forth to each other. Also, you keep giving it back to yourself. I am no longer surrounded by any one else that has it, which is great, but to avoid giving it back to myself I keep a cup filled with rubbing alcohol in my bathroom and after every single use of my razor I soak it in the cup. I really feel that this is important.

    *As you are battling this, you must keep your house as sterile as possible. I like to use natural cleaners in my house but while I was dealing with this I didn’t want to mess around. I bought very strong bathroom spray with bleach in it and kept Clorox wipes in my house. Keep your bathroom clean. Also, change your sheets and towels more often than you normally would. Remember, if you are in the bathroom extracting a MRSA breakout, you pretty much have to tell yourself that it’s a bio-hazard area. No one else should be there unless you really need help. EVERYTHING needs to be cleaned once you are done. Any towels used must be kept separately and washed in very hot water and possibly bleach. Wipe down every area you (and what has come out of you) have touched. Remember that what comes out of you is toxic.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    I clicked on the “MRSA in the Lynwood County Jail” link and it said page not found. Did Perez remove this page for some reason?
