MRSA (pronounced "MER-suh") stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, caused from "Staph" bacteria (germs). This infection is harder to treat than others because these germs cannot be killed by regular antibiotics. MRSA may start out as a small red bump like a pimple and may become painful, swollen, or warm to the touch. You may also develop a fever.
Speak with your healthcare provider for more information or if you have concerns about MRSA. For more information, visit https://www.cdc.gov/mrsa/community/index.html
