In brief: Yes, go to doctor

MRSA is a bacterial infection that is easily spread, even without direct contact.
It sounds like you have an infection forming which could spread on your face. Go see your doctor this week or go to an urgent care clinic if you can't get I right away. You may be prescribed antibiotics.
