London, Feb 13: The scandal-hit superstar Michael Jackson is being treated with antibiotics for what could be strain of the deadly MRSA virus. According to an expert, Jackson's nose might collapse soon due to infection.
According to sources: “Michael Jackson has a severe staph infection that he contracted during work to reconstruct his nose. The infection has spread throughout his face and body and is being aggressively treated by doctors.
Hence the superstar is currently visiting a Beverley Hills clinic twice a week."There"s a chance it could turn into a flesh-eating disorder where it begins to kill off his skin so he"s being very carefully monitored," sources revealed.
The star was photographed leaving the clinic with a mask covering his inflamed face and with "red and purple blotches" on his hands. US celebrity plastic surgeon Dr Anthony Youn explained the dangers: "In some worse cases surgeons will have to remove the infected tissue if it dies — leaving the patient needing major reconstructive surgery. It is particularly worrying if it is on the face."
Jackson, 50 is famous for his addiction to plastic surgery.
