Specializes in Pediatrics

Mostly MRSA is a simple staph infection, a bacteria that causes skin rashes, boils and such. It can lead to invasive infection and sepsis, but as long as it's treated with the proper antibiotic in a timely manner, and steps are taken to decrease carriage in family and on the baby's person, things should be fine.
