    Dear Readers,

    Here is a link to some information about MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) that you may find helpful.

    MRSA is becoming more and more common and it is important to understand the nature of the illness and what it means so that you can treat it appropriately. While it can be dangerous, it is usually handled with alternative medications and preventing it from spreading.


    Dr. Evans.
