MRSA Skin Infections

Superficial MRSA Skin Infections 

  • Pimples, boils, and impetigo. Impetigo is a superficial or surface skin infection. 
  • If left untreated, superficial infections have potential to progress into serious/invasive infections. 

Deep MRSA Skin Infections 

  • MRSA Cellulitis – a deep skin infection extending into underlying tissue. 
  • MRSA Abscess – a deep pocket of pus. 
  • Cellulitis and abscesses may be small and localized or progress into serious/invasive infections.
