How does MRSA affect the body?

A Answers (1)

  • Most cases of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have the same affect on the body as other staph infections. MRSA is just particularly difficult to treat or cure. The skin is the part of the body most affected by the condition, as the bacteria can cause boils, blisters, hair root infection, and peeling skin. If not monitored or treated properly, MRSA can spread to affect the blood, bones, and major organs of the body like the heart and lungs.
