What has MRSA got to do with hotel heiress Paris Hilton? And what is MRSA?
It's hard for those not in the know to associate Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) or staph infection with a young woman who just can't avoid the limelight of American celebrity culture.
The news is just out that Paris has been let out of jail for undisclosed medical reasons and put under house arrest. However, it was reported Paris had developed a rash on her body that could be attributed to staph infection while she was in lockup.
Knowing that staph infections are rampant in many American jails, somebody could have recommended what Paris should use before serving her jail term, then she would not have gotten the rash. Yes, Paris should have used StaphAseptic if she wants to avoid MRSA.
An MRSA infection can be deadly if left untreated. We wouldn't want to see something bad happening to our sweet celebrity.
Update: Poor Paris Hilton has been sent back to jail in tears after a judge overruled a sheriff's decision to confine the 26-year-old socialite at her own home. This came about after complaints of special treatment. She'll have to serve her full 45-day sentence.
