Does MRSA skin infection spread or could it remain a simple scratch without signs of infection?

In brief: Cellulitis

Very strong possibility of this progressing into cellulitis if not properly treated.
If the wound/scratch is infected it will be erythematous, tender and usually have drainage. Treat any infection appropriately with antibiotics and local wound care.
