Jacko has caught deadly skin ravaging infection?February 13th, 2009 - 1:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 13 (ANI): Onetime pop king Michael Jackson, whose ever-changing looks have always been a subject of speculation, has once again hit the headlines with reports suggesting that his skin has been infected by a skin-ravaging bug.
MRSA expert Mark Enright, a professor at Imperial College London, says that Jacksons skin has a Staph infection.
The doctor says that the infection has made the required treatment difficult, as the singers skin has become immune to antibiotic medication.
The Heal The World hitmaker is under observation, as he is suffering from painfully inflamed skin on his face and hands, and his skin may never heal properly, if reports are to be believed.
It is also being assumed that Michael might have got the bug-infection during a reconstructive nose job.
A wound infection like MRSA on a delicate area like the nose could cause the tissue to collapse, the Sun quoted Prof Enright as saying.
Meanwhile, Michael is reportedly receiving treatment for the bug via an intravenous drip at Beverly Hills clinic, and was pictured leaving the clinic with inflamed and blotchy skin partly concealed beneath a surgical mask. (ANI)
