In brief: Yes

You can get MRSA anywhere the skin gets broken, and many people have been colonized with MRSA so they get recurrent infections.
If you have had that, then be sure to see you doctor, and you may need an infectious disease doctor, to treat you with the proper antibiotics. Your doctor might also culture your nasal passages maybe treat for carriage of MRSA in the nose. Go to your doctor!

You can try to prevent MRSA infections by taking diluted bleach baths 2-3 times a week. Mix one-half cup of regular Clorox bleach (sodium hypochlorite) into your bath tub that is one-quarter filled with lukewarm water and bathe in this diluted bleach water for five to thirty minutes.

In brief: Yes

Yes the is certainly possible.
I assume you have seen an infectious disease expert for recommendations about special anti microbial soaps and cleansing routines to decrease the bacterial colonization.
