Is it unusual to have sinus infection MRSA without fever. I tested positive on culture that was suctioned rather than swab, but i don't have fever.?

In brief: Colonization

Many of us have staph, and some have mrsa, present in our nose, groin and skin without any invasion of tissue or infection.
Colonization does not have any symptoms but the carrier can transmit infection to others. See this site for more information. http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/epidemiology/surveillance/mrsa/.
