    you can get cream to apply to the wound to get rid of the infection. they could admit her but she would be isolated as a precaution.
    have they swabbed the rest of her? if shes posiitve elsewhere she needs to wash in a special soap too.

    she is to be swabbed all over her body tomoro to see where it is she is so worked up it will be passed to her baby now or even after through a vaginal birth

    My dad had it when I was pregnant with Nathan and he had like a cream that went up his nose and a wash that he had to use in the shower and he was clear in a few weeks. He never had no problems in hospital though. He was admitted cos they thought he had meningitis and kept in isolation but when they found out he had MRSA he was just put on a normal ward :? We were all surprised at this.
