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.
