Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an infection caused by Staphylococcus (staph) bacteria. This type of bacteria is resistant to many different antibiotics. These bacteria naturally live in the nose and on the skin and generally harmless. But, when they begin to multiply uncontrollably, a MRSA infection can occur. MRSA infections typically occur when there’s a cut or break in your skin. MRSA is very contagious and can be spread through direct contact with a person who has the infection. MRSA infections are classified as either hospital-acquired (HAMRSA) or community-acquired (CA-MRSA). Though a MRSA infection can be serious, it may be treated effectively with certain antibiotics.
