Were you looking for information about MRSA? MERZA is a common misspelling of MRSA.
If you have MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), you may have a red bump or a cluster of bumps that resemble a pimple, pustule, or boil. These bumps may be swollen, warm, and painful, and may also contain pus or other drainage. MRSA is a type of bacterial infection that is spread by direct skin-to-skin contact with someone who has the infection, or by touching a contaminated surface. For minor infections, a healthcare provider typically prescribes antibiotics. However, more serious infections may require hospitalization and IV antibiotics.
