Can MRSA spread from one spot on your body to another while being treated with antibiotics? Can you cross contaminate yourself?
MRSA: Even if you have been treated you are probably still carrying this on your skin and mucous membranes. Depends on your definition of "contagious". This organism is generally transferred person to person by direct hand contact, and then the other person may only become a carrier. Infection requires a break in the skin or soft tissues or introduction into an immune suppressed person. ...Read more

Yes: It does depend on where the infection was and how it was contracted. Also, which antibiotics were used. That said, if it was successfully treated and you are doing well now, i wouldn't worry about it too much.

How long is a toddler still contagious after being treated for mrsa. He's finished antibiotics but still has a small sore on his belly (no puss)?
I was diagnosed with MRSA about a week ago, put on antibiotics and the site drained a few days later. I've developed a painful swollen lymph node in the groin area. It's oddly shaped. Should I go back in or give my body time? I'm still on antibiotics.
Go back in: You need to have this node evaluated as it is unusual to develop new nodes while you are on antibiotics. This may be an abscess that needs drainage. Make sure that you are also doing other things to prevent the spread of MRSA including using Hibiclens as a body wash, sanitizing everything in the bathroom with bleach/water combination and using Bactroban ointment in the nose for two weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
