In brief: MRSA

As with many home tests errors can occur, if you feel you actively have an MRSA infection or you are a carrier please discuss this with your physician.

In brief: Confirmation needed.

Mrsa screening kits are available, but they are just that - screening tests.
To know for sure if you have MRSA (which is a significant infection), you need to have a culture done at your doctor's office, and have the proper antibiotic prescribed if the culture is positive.
