Recently, cases of skin infections caused by Methicillin-Resistant
Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have been identified in the community. While most cases have involved athletes, cases involving non-athletes have also occurred. Skin infections such as abscesses and boils are the most common form of this infection. The infected area usually starts out as a small bump resembling a pimple or spider bite, which becomes redder and often develops pus drainage. The information below provides some general information about these types of infections and what people can do to help prevent and control the spread of MRSA in the community setting. Copies of the video "Prevention of MRSA in the Athletic Setting" are being offered for sale.
