Howard told Richard that he got an email from a listener who feared he could have a potentially-fatal MRSA staph infection: “Look at that thing, see how it’s getting a ring around it?”

Gary noted that puss came out of Richard’s wound for four days before he began treating it. Later, Dr. Jules came by to examine Richard and determined that he really could have MRSA: “It’s not a big thing, but he’s gotta keep it covered…he needs to be on antibiotic pills.”
