MRSA: Mrsa is a pernicious form of drug-resistant staphylococcus. It is an increasing problem worldwide. It is unclear whether the rash you describe is due to MRSA or to something else. But generally speaking, MRSA does not cause rashes. Something else may be the reason. Best to ask his physician to evaluate this. A drug reaction is possible.
