In brief: Yes
Mrsa is difficult to treat and can reoccur very quickly.
The antibiotic may not be specific to the bacteria.

In brief: Possibly
If you are taking an antibiotic that is not effective against mrsa, the bacteria will continue causing what ever disease it was causing, i.
E sores, abcesses, pneumonia etc..., until the right antibiotic is given.
