How To Manage MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) Infection in Ayurveda?


MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) infection is a kind of infection that is caused by staph bacteria. These bacteria are usually found on the skin or the nose and become resistant to the antibodies that are used to treat the staph infection. If left untreated, the infection may cause several complications. Hence there is a strong need to treat this infection. Herbal medicines offered by Ayurveda are a natural way to manage this infection.


Types of MRSA Infection

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is of two types. The one which occurs in people who are working in health care centers is known as HA-MRSA infection. While the one which occurs in healthy people, in a wider community, is known as CA-MRSA.

Common Symptoms of MRSA Infection

Appearance of painful red bumps filled with pus or other drainage is the primary symptom of MRSA infection. These bumps are similar to the pimples or the spider bites. The infection is often accompanied by the fever.

Cause of MRSA Infection

A group of various different varieties of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria is commonly known as "staph". MRSA infection is caused by this staph bacteria.
Such bacteria are generally harmless but once they get entry into our body through wounds or cuts, they may result in serious infection.

Diagnosis of MRSA Infection

MRSA infection can be checked by doctors using a tissue sample for signs of drug-resistant bacteria. As the bacteria is found on the nose also, nasal secretions can also be used for diagnosis. The sample is then tested in a lab where it is placed in a dish of nutrients that encourage the growth of the bacteria.

This testing will take at least 48 hours for the bacteria to grow. Hence, there are some newer tests which can detect staph DNA in a matter of hours and are now becoming more widely available.

Ayurveda and Herbal Treatment

Ayurveda is an ancient health care system that has its roots in India. Treatment offered by Ayurveda is based on the idea of balance in the bodily systems. The treatment also uses diet, herbal medicines and yogic breathing to manage the symptoms of any disorder. Herbal treatment gives a permanent relief from the symptoms.

Ways to Prevent the Spreading of MRSA Infection

No doubt, MRSA infection can be well treated with medicines, but here are some ways that can help prevent the spreading of this infection.

  • If you are suffering from MRSA infection, then you should cover your wounds with clean, dry bandages until they get healed. As the pus in the infected wound may contain MRSA, so keeping the wound covered will help prevent the spreading of MRSA to others.
  • Bandages and tape should be thrown away after using. Clean your hands often with clean soap and water. Family members or anyone who is in close contact with you, should also wash their hands. You can use an alcohol based hand rub especially after using the bandage or touching the wound.
  • A person suffering from MRSA infection should not share his personal items such as towel, washcloth, razor, clothing as well as uniform.
  • Used sheets, towels, and clothes of an infected person should be washed properly with water and laundry detergent. You can use a dryer to dry these things completely.
