I have had this infection for four years now, my nipples have discharge and I generally feel unwell what is mrsa? Can it be cured? Can it kill?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
It can be curedThat is why a lab is needed, to see which antibiotics it is sensitive too.Required.It does not kill generally, it is just like any other staph infection.It can be chronic if not treated correctly.Please click a positive at this point.Come back if needed after that.I am board certified in integrative medicine, internal medicine, trained in functional medicine and homeopathy, etc. I am here daily: use my request link as needed and “for Dr. Thomas” in the question title. Give that link to friends, family, associates, etc. Find me as needed for correct, safe and accurate answers.
