MRSA is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a potentially dangerous type of staph bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics and may cause skin and other infections.How can you reduce the spread of MRSA?
Pus from infected wounds can contain MRSA. Do not pick at or pop the sore. Throw away bandages and tape with the regular trash. Clean your hands often. Do not share personal items such as towels, washcloths, razors, and clothing, including uniforms. Wash laundry before use by others and clean your hands after touching dirty clothes.Why is MRSA so dangerous?
MRSA is dangerous because it cannot be treated with many standard antibiotics. MRSA behaves much like other staph bacteria. It most often lives in the nose or on the skin without causing disease. But all staph bacteria have the potential to cause trouble.
