Were you looking for information about MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) Infection? Merca staff infection is a common misspelling of MRSA infection.
Staphylococcus aureus, often referred to simply as "staph," is a type of bacteria commonly carried on the skin or in the nose of healthy people. In some cases, however, staph bacteria can cause skin infections and other illnesses. MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a type of staph infection that is resistant to treatment with certain antibiotics. It typically appears as a skin infection that resembles a spider bite.
MRSA is transmitted in a couple of ways. In many cases, it is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact. It can also be transmitted when a person touches towels, used bandages, or other items that have come into contact with another person's infection.
