Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) | Symptoms


What are the symptoms of MRSA?

MRSA skin infections appear as bumps that may look like pimples and boils. These bumps can be red, swollen, painful or have pus. Cuts, scrapes and hairy areas of the body are common places for these bumps to appear. Bumps from MRSA infection can quickly turn into abscesses, which are deep, infected wounds filled with pus.
