Methicillin-Resistent Staphylococcus Aureus

Were you looking for information about MRSA? Methicillin-resistent Staphylococcus aureus is a common misspelling of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
 
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA for short, is a type of bacterial infection that typically affects the skin. This infection can cause a red bump similar in appearance to a spider bite. This bump or cluster of bumps may be swollen, warm, and painful, and may also contain pus or other drainage. Although MRSA can affect anyone, it tends to occur more often in certain settings, such as schools, correctional facilities, and daycare centers.
