  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is resistant to most commonly used antibiotics. This type of staph bacteria can live on a person's skin without causing an infection, but when passed by physical contact may infect another person. You can prevent the spread of MRSA with regular hand washing and by keeping open wounds covered.
