MRSA Question (urgent)
Started by Scott
Posted: November 28, 2007 at 09:36

I recently spent 5 days in the hospital with an MRSA infection on my leg. It was nasty and extremely painful. I was put on Vancamycin (sp?) and released after 6 days. It has been 3 weeks since that time, and I have just finished my last dose of Bactrim yesterday. The actual wound is healing up for the most part (was able to stop re-packing a few days ago), and now that I am off the daily antibiotics, my energy is starting to come back.

Anyways, yesterday I started to get this weird sensation in my mouth. Underneath my tongue, at the very back-left, an incredible soreness is developing. I mean, if I move my tongue at all or swallow - it hurts, bad. This is not a sore throat. I obviously know what that feels like and this is not that. My gums are a little swollen also, but that could be something totally separate. Who knows.

So, this leads me up to my stupid question. Can you develop an MRSA sore on your tongue or inner-mouth between gums/tongue and throat? If so, that's a scary thought. Is it possible? I hope it's just a weird anomoly. Can anyone offer me confort, or at least clear things up for me? :)

MRSA is like gulf war illness. You may have to stay on antibiotis for a year. You need to eat well and get plenty of rest.

Dear Scott
You need to visit your doctor to investigate the discomfort in your mouth. It is possible for you to contract an infection such as MRSA, equally there may be side effects from medication you are taking. Only your GP will be able to do the necessary tests to diagnose the cause of the discomfort.

NHS Direct offer a helpline regarding medical advice, their number is 0845 4647.

Our website gives information on MRSA and other infections, visit

In answer to your question. Yes. You most definitely can get mrsa in your mouth. You can get it anywhere. On your legs, your arms, head, mouth, hands, feet, INSIDE OF YOU< your lungs, heart, blood system! This is a very serious disease that you can get anywhere and is very had to get rid of. I'm going through it now for the third time. Twice on my legs and now on my side. On a stretch mark no less just to add to the pain. Get your mouth looked at. ASAP. And I wish you a safe swift PERMANENT recovery

YES! MRSA csn be in your tongue & throat, thats where my infection was. MRSA is
an "infection of opportunity". It will present itself in areas of vulnerability, esp on
skin cuts/sores.

Consider this, however, im thinking they had you on vancomyacin for your original
infection. Vanco is the big guns of antibiotics. A side effect of antibiotics is the
killing off of good and bad bacteria. This causes yeast infection. Yeast overgrowth
in the mouth is called thrush or oral candida. Its a fungal infection. You could have
mrsa or thrush. Its important to find out which one bc mrsa will require more
antibiotics, but thrush will be made worse by more antibiotics. Thrush is a fungal
infection and youll need a script for something called "miracle mouthwash" to treat

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this horrible infection. Check out the site below.
Just click enter. I've had several friends who were suffering from MRSA and all the
terrible effects of this infection. And after 9-12 months of antibiotics and no
resolution, they found pHenomenal and within 4-6 weeks a miraculous change. DO
NOT BELIEVE ME. Look for yourself. It could very well be exactly what you need. Hit Enter and get informed.

pHenomenal Water is one of the only products out there that has a proven track
record against defeating MRSA. They say " The most expensive thing you'll ever own
is a closed mind " And that is sooooo true.

Don't believe me. Learn for yourself.

Hi, I have been diagnosed with MRSA positive since April. I worked in a nursing home and I'm not
allowed to work until I'm clear. I have to take tests. My nose, throat and perineum. I found out I
have MRSA when I have my self tested because of recurrent boils. I've been under treatment, like
the nose salve, clorhexidine for shower, and gargle. I don't have boils anymore. (I was suffering
recurrent, painful boils for 3 months, til April) After treatment, I came up negative in all three
sites. But 2nd test showed positive in the throat. And I had to undergo treatment again, and same
thing happened. I am not sick. I don't have boils. I mean I don't feel anything, except having
positive test result of MRSA in my throat. I don't want to think that this more serious than it looks,
because I am also thinking about my work.If I won't be able to get rid of this, that would mean I
couldn't work in the health sector, which is my only line of work. I've done everything I could. I'm
in a foreign country, away from family. And I feel like I just need to write this.

After having recurring tonsils and mouth sores just realized that i
have MRSA in my thoart. I am generally not sick but its still MRSA.

Started with Manuka honey daily 1 spoon after dinner and 2 table
spoons of Apple Cider vinegar to fight my MRSA. Fingers crossed.

If anyone has tried something like this with success please share

Dear all, would you please give me an
update about your situation and provide me
some suggestion?
I am also identified with MRSA in my
throat and nose. But my doctor did not
give any medicine. I am also infected with
lymph node tuberculosis and taking
medicine for tuberculosis.
My tongue looks strange and cracked at the looks like eaten by superbugs. I
dont have any problem in swallowing foods
or water. But I feel insucured all the
time.ENT doctor told me may be I have to
carry this mrsa life long. Is there
anybody Who has faced such Problem?
