    That ankle injury attributed to Chiefs receiver Dexter McCluster isn’t a sprain or a bruise or any other traditional ankle injury.

    OK.....stupid question....what is MSRA?

    Basically a bacterial infection that has developed resistance to most antibiotics (resistance meaning the antibiotics don't work), and as such is very difficult to treat. Really bad cases lead to "flesh eating" bacteria that are really only treatable by cutting out the infected parts of the body (and a significant amount of the surrounding, not infected tissue).


    Resistance occurs naturally in some bacteria, but is accelerated when bacteria are exposed to antibiotics, but not a strong enough or long enough dose to completely kill them. This is why you finish ALL your antibiotics when your doc gives you some, and why you NEVER take someone else's antibiotics or some old ones. Even when you are feeling better 2 days into a 7 day course of antibiotics, there is still bacteria in your system, and it is the most dangerous kind since the weak bacteria have already been killed off, and the remaining bacteria is already tougher because it has survived a few days of antibiotics. By only taking a couple days of antibiotics instead of the full course, you have essentially made the bacteria in your system that much stronger by killing off the weaker competition.


    Sorry for the PSA, but I thought it was a good opportunity to spread some important knowledge.

    There's two threads on this same subject, maybe in the other thread?
