MRSA: Pain, redness, abscess, fever. That is the best i can do without knowing where your MRSA infection was at, how treatment went and what medications you are currently on.

Fevers/chills: If your infection was adequately treated and your picc line removed, your infection should have been cured. If you are experiencing fevers/chills or generalized fatigue and are not feeling well you should visit your doctor.
