Gummi Bear is Disintegrating!

8/20/2007 12:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that our favorite ursine specimen, Jason "Gummi Bear" Davis, has developed -- wait for it -- a flesh eating disease! Call a vet!


Gummi told our staffer that he contracted a staph infection after scraping his legs in a nasty fall a couple of months ago. Gummi fall down go boom! The open wounds became infected, causing "weeping" sores that spread all over his body, back and legs. Unbearable! Gummi said he's on a powerful antibiotic called Zyvox-- at $4,000 a pop! Jason told a TMZ staffer, "I am literally being eating alive!" A smorgasboard for bacteria that could take up to thirty-two years to accomplish.

One positive thing for Gummi: he's given up booze and says he hasn't had a drink for nine weeks. Just when the bear was repairing, he starts to rot.

The only reason someone is put on Zyvox is because they have an MRSA Staph infection.
Those are no fun and VERY serious
It may take 3-6mnths to get rid of it. At $4,000 a dose times 90 days thats a whopping $360,000 to get rid of it.Its no fun,
Good Luck Gummi

you all should pray that you never get like that. Why make comments about someone like that. U all looks like to me m like those cheerleaders, that bu lie others , because their appearances looks better. You might have a GOOD health life right now, but be careful because karma might hit you RIGHT BACK in the face some day.
