New Booklet Reveals 12 Proven Methods for Stopping MRSA from Infecting Your Feet and Your Family's Feet
Date:11/27/2007

CROWN POINT, Ind., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Pronounced "mursa," methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is one of the worst infections-a true "superbug." But, there is nothing super about it. It has killed the elderly, babies, toddlers, teenagers and even healthy athletes. Recently, MRSA has been responsible for closing public schools.

One of the most common places MRSA enters our bodies is through our feet. This infection can start innocently, perhaps with a nick or cut. You might pick up MRSA walking across the locker room floor, around a pool, or even from your shoes.

Now, Dr. Michael Nirenberg, known as America's Podiatrist, has published the booklet, "MRSA and Your Feet: 12 Ways to Protect Your Feet and Your Family's Feet."

As a practicing podiatrist, Nirenberg has treated over 10,000 feet and routinely sees serious foot infections. MRSA causes the worst of these. It can burrow into bones, sometimes causing gangrene and resulting in the amputation of a toe or even the foot.

"People don't realize how easily MRSA can enter their feet," Nirenberg says. "Preventing MRSA infections in your feet is easy, once you know what to do."

Among the methods Nirenberg outlines to keep our feet safe from MRSA are:

* Check Your Feet Daily

It's amazing how many people don't look at their feet, or if they do

have a problem, they shove their foot into their shoe and forget about

it. MRSA often starts as a small bump or swelling. There may not be

pain, but that doesn't mean a serious infection isn't starting.

If you cannot bend over to see the bottom of your feet, have someone

check them for you or use a mirror.

* Be Careful How You Use Your Towel

Scientists have proven towels can breed bacteria and spread MRSA.

Don't share towels. If you use a towel to wipe off equipment at the

gym or one on your feet, don't use it on your body.

At home, bacteria breed quickly in damp towels, so wash them often.

The water temperature should be 40 degrees if you use bleach or 60

degrees without bleach.
