A friend had open heart surgery went home after rehab but became sick at stomach plus her legs were in pain. She is back in hospital after vomiting blood which only happened once but she has gone through all kinds of test and found nothing but yet she was diagnosed with MRSA. She is still vomiting up her food.

My 3-year-old grandson had a large pimple-looking area in his groin area. It came to a head and started to drain. His father took him to his doctor and was told it was MRSA and started him on two different antibiotics. I work in the eldercare business and do not want to pass it on to any clients.
