PEDICURES ARE SEEN AS THE MUST-HAVE SUMMER BEAUTY TREATMENTS BY MANY PEOPLE, BUT NOT CHECKING THE CLEANLINESS OF YOUR SALON MAY LEAD TO AN MRSA BACTERIAL INFECTION.  DR. JEFFREY FREDERICK, A PODIATRIST AT NORTHPOINTE FOOT AND ANKLE CLINIC IN BERKLEY, SAID THAT AN MRSA INFECTION IS FAR WORSE THAN A  NORMAL INFECTION.

"WE ALL HAVE STAFF BACTERIA ON OUR SKIN, BUT OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS, THIS SUPER BACTERIA HAS COME TO LIGHT AND IT MAKES THE SYMPTOMS OF A NORMAL INFECTION FAR WORSE," SAYS PODIATRIST FREDERICK.  "...IF YOU'VE GONE FOR A PEDICURE AND SEE SOME REDNESS AT THE SIDES OF YOUR NAILS, IT MAY BE A MRSA INFECTION.  YOU CAN'T JUST GO HOME AND SOAK YOUR FOOT AND IT WILL GO AWAY," SAYS PODIATRIST FREDERICK.  "IT NEEDS TO BE MANAGED WITH ANTIBIOTICS APPROPRIATELY THAT'LL KILL THE MRSA BACTERIA."

AS A SIDE NOTE ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THAT WE HAVE THESE SUPER BACTERIA THAT CAUSE FLESH EATING DISEASE IS BECAUSE OF PRIOR INDISCRIMATIVE USE OF WIDE SPECTRUM ANTIBIOTICS THAT LEFT US WITH SUPER RESISTANT BACTERIA SUCH AS MRSA.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS AGREE, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS, CHIROPRACTORS AND PODIATRISTS, THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CONTACT YOUR FOOT SPECIALIST IF YOU HAVE SIGNS OF INFECTION IN YOUR FOOT, ESPECIALLY DIABETICS WITH DECREASED RESISTANCE AND POOR HEALING ABILITY OF THE LOWER LIMB.
