MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Under the normal circumstances, bacterial infections can be cured with antibiotic medications. S. aureus is a bacterium resistant to antibiotics and present in almost 1/3 of the population. This should not cause the alarm, since the bacterium is harmless until it enters the skin and causes infection. The infection itself might be superficial, looking like an inflamed hair follicle or cause redness, pain and oozing. In some cases, infections might be quite serious.
Bear in mind that the MRSA infections may become life threat. Redness, inflammation and hot and painful boils or cuts, especially if they are associated with fever, should be the reason to consult the doctor and look for urgent medical help.
Doctors suggest washing the hand often during the day. Also, sharing personal cosmetic items is not a good idea. So, always make sure that you are the only person who uses the razor, soap and towels.
Bacteria need damp conditions for the development, so after the exercise and shower always dry your body completely. If you cut yourself, clean the area to avoid possible infection. Covering the cut might also be a way to prevent inflammation and infection.
