What is MRSA ?

 

MRSA is the abbreviation for 
Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus. 

What is the most common presentation of a patient with MRSA? 

"I got bit by a spider" 

Patients with MRSA often present with painful boils, infected wounds, or what they presume to be a spider bite.  Sometimes MRSA presents like a large painful pimple, that when a patient attempts to pop, minimal pus comes out. This action then causes the MRSA bacteria in the wound or boil to be infiltrated into the surrounding tissue, assisting it in becoming an abscess.  

If you think you have MRSA, you must see a licensed medical provider immediately. 

MRSA, or more specifically, CA-MRSA, (Community Acquired MRSA).  This differs from hospital acquired MRSA, though both strains are found in the community.
