NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) Hate insects? Afraid of germs? Researchers are reporting an alarming combination: bedbugs carrying a staph superbug.
Canadian scientists detected drug-resistant staph bacteria in bedbugs from three hospital patients from a downtrodden Vancouver neighborhood.

Or spray with just clorox bleach as this is known to kill all germs even aids.
A known to be excellent; trauma hospital in the US is where I had surgery. I got a wicked staph infection from the hospital.
Does anyone know where hospital reports on this; can be checked?
I got one in a very well known and highly respected university hospital. I wasn’t even the patient! However I was there daily and for long hours when my mother had 4th stage cancer. I do have an auto immune disease so my dr said it made me susceptible. She’s the one who thinks I got it at the hospital. Took me 2 years to get rid of it. The dr even treated my nose. She said often medical caregivers harbor it in their noses.
Yep. Darn near killed me. Lost a hip and wrist. Six months plus of antibotic IV. We figured it was from my nose. I work in Hospitals.
I was just diagnosed with MRSA a few days ago. I’ve been getting the boils associated with it for years, but I just had a particularly nasty one and my doctor ran a culture. Now that we know what we’re dealing with, I hope we can get a handle on it.
I had MANY staph UTI’s from the cath. I was on antibiotics so long to no avail.
I now swear by probiotics (I got C DIFF fromm all the antibiotics) Mannose UT Vibrance-VIBRANT HEALTH.
Also: Critical Care probiotics by Renew Life. (The secret to probiotics working is the esoteric vegtable coating so the probiotics make it past the stomache acid.)
I am now a big believer in home remedies/Natural herbs.
Almost killed me two. Three surgeries in 18 months. Got in the epidural space in my spine and got in the bone. I am too familiar with picc line fed antibiotics..
” Got in the epidural space in my spine and got in the bone”
If you don’t mind me asking, any idea how it originated?
“I am now a big believer in home remedies/Natural herbs.”
My Dr. used colloidal silver dressings for my wrist in addition to the IVs. As a result, I did a lot of research on colloidal silver. I make my own with distilled water I make myself. Take a daily dose, plus I have found it makes the occassional wart/mole melt away in a couple of weeks. Same with foot fungus. And NO, I have not turned BLUE.
Supposedly pure garlic juice kills MRSA in wound care.
I have read in severe cases where this has helped. A family member that was a burn victim can testify.
LOL you want to shut down the information highway of the internet? People can research themselves. I can attest to studies where science and nature meet and remedies actually work.
I was hospitalized with MRSA in 2008 because my (former) doctor didn’t take seriously a boil I had on my hip. After not taking a long enough course of antibiotics, I ended up with an abscess in my sinuses. I felt like I was going to die.
I wonder if Canada’s nationalized healthcare enables MRSA and no infection control more?
That is a very good question...if not, guess what we have to look forward to with Obamacare?
No idea. Pilonidal cysts from 20yrs ago maybe. That’s all I can think of...
Order some manuka honey online..
Glad you are better.
Why, thanks. It was pretty rough going for a while.
