MRSA stands for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus. This as a common infection that is caused by a strain of Staphylococcus bacteria. The bacteria have been evolving over time, and it has developed resistance to the different types oof antibiotics. These bacterias are known to live on the skin and in the nose but they cause no harm.
MRSA occurs when these bacterias multiply uncontrollably especially when there is a break or a cut in the skin. The infection is contagious and spreads very fast. It is mainly spread when you have a direct contact with the infected individual. You may also get infected by getting in touch with a surface or object which has been touched by the infected person.
MRSA infections are broadly classified as either community-acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA) or hospital -acquired MRSA (HA-MRSA). CA-MRSA infections are transmitted through personal contact with the infected individuals while the HA-MRSA infections are transmitted in medical facilities such as nursing homes or hospitals.
