"I would say it is at an epidemic level right now."

Dr. J. Wiley is a pediatrician at Dothan Pediatric Clinic, where he comes in contact with two or three cases coming in daily, especially with children in preschool. Hygiene will forever be changed with the outbreak of Methicillin-resistant Stahplyococcus aureus, also known as MRSA.

The way that the bacteria is spread is through direct contact with someone or something that has the infection already. Once the person is infected it causes "redness, boils or pimple-like bumps on the skin...tenderness, swelling, sometimes a fever." This infection can be treated with antibiotics if it is caught in the early stages. Sometimes the boils need to be drained of fluid and the antibiotics need to be increased. MRSA can be found anywhere on the body. In most cases in preschool it is usually found in the diaper area.

To help prevent more children from coming in contact with this infection workers are taking the appropriate measures.

"Our workers, wear gloves and wash their hands anytime they come in contact with any type of body fluids, from wiping noses to changing diapers," one director has said. They have also washed toys and equipment daily and used a bleach solution to kill germs. Another way to prevent this is to constantly wash your hands with soap and warm water or using an anti-bacterial hand gel to get rid of any germs.

Although the outbreak of this infection has worried parents, Dr. J. Wiley states "It's spread through direct's not going to jump across the room on you."

The more technical the study sounds, the less likely it delivers good news.  Good news is usually trumpeted in catchy headlines, not buried in scientific lingo.  So when you see a study called “Efficacy of the Decolonization of MRSA Carriers in Clinical Practice,” you can assume it isn’t good.  And it isn’t.

There is new hope for people suffering from a particularly dangerous strain of Staph infection.  Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus, or MRSA, has become the scourge of hospitals around the country, and is now becoming more and more common in other environments. Restaurants are testing positive for it on their tables and silverware, and the people you brush against on the New York subway or city street might have it on their skin: not something we want to think about.
