What is MRSA/VRSA?
Staphylococcus Aureus, often called “Staph” is a common bacterium that can be found of the skin or nose of healthy people. Staph bacteria can cause infections that are often easily treated without antibiotics. Some strains of Staph have developed immunity to antibiotics, some of these varieties include MRSA and VRSA.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA) are two forms of anti-biotic resistant Staph infection. MRSA and VRSA can survive on some surfaces, like towels, furniture, and equipment for hours, days, or even weeks. These bacteria can be spread to people who touch a surface that is contaminated. Although Hand-washing is an important tool in the preventing the spread of Staph infections, it is also essential to clean and disinfect surfaces that may harbor the “Staph” bacterium.

What are the symptoms of MRSA?
The symptoms of MRSA depend on where you're infected. Most often, it causes mild infections on the skin, causing pimples or boils. But it can also cause more serious skin infections or infect surgical wounds, the bloodstream, the lungs, or the urinary tract.
Though most MRSA infections aren't serious, some can be life-threatening. Many public health experts are alarmed by the spread of tough strains of MRSA. Because it's hard to treat, MRSA is sometimes called a "super bug."
What does it look like?
The typical MRSA infection on the skin will form a pimple like sore. Within a day or two you may notice that unlike your typical pimple, the area keeps growing, is red and firm. Within a few days you may start to notice the top becoming white as the sac of puss is pushed nearer to the surface. These will usually need to be drained, cleaned and packed like the one in this photo. Special antibiotics will need to be taken to help fight the infection. Seek medical attention if you have one of these wounds. Do not wait until it spreads!
