B sure & don't fus : Many people have mrsa, u r exposed 2 it every day from just being around people in general. The reason there is a false stigma placed on those who have it is sad. It more important 2 know u have it or r a carrier than not. It is important not to enter hospitals or wear a mask 2 visit & he should not feel bad about it. If he were a surgical candidate every 1 is tested & rx'd b4 surg infec du 2=bad.
