Yes: You can get MRSA anywhere the skin gets broken, and many people have been colonized with MRSA so they get recurrent infections. If you have had that, then be sure to see you doctor, and you may need an infectious disease doctor, to treat you with the proper antibiotics. Your doctor might also culture your nasal passages maybe treat for carriage of MRSA in the nose. Go to your doctor!

Yes : Yes the is certainly possible. I assume you have seen an infectious disease expert for recommendations about special anti microbial soaps and cleansing routines to decrease the bacterial colonization.
