"MRSA has been found in coastal waters, and those of us who like to see how many consecutive non-showering days we can tally might want to change our filthy habits. Timmy Turner and Ryan Carlson are among professional surfers who have recently battled serious MRSA infections.

Symptoms: Painful sores, fever, warmth around infection site, shortness of breath, headache, and muscle aches.

What: MRSA is often called a “superbug” and we don’t have the kryptonite that can easily kill it. The bacteria is normally harmless and lives in the nose and on the skin of unsuspecting carriers, but when MRSA enters the bloodstream through wounds it can reek havoc on internal organs."
