MRSA Staph Infection Pictures
MRSA Staph Infection Photographs
WARNING: Some of these pictures can be graphic.
This picture shows the MRSA staph bacterium growing on a catheter (ouch!). This is likely a case of HA-MRSA
(Healthcare-Associated Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus).
This picture of the MRSA bacterium was taken with an electron microscope and magnified 20,000 times.
MRSA sores can occur when healthy people contact the liquid from an infection. All open wounds should be thoroughly covered before contact with other people. The infectious liquid can also be found on surfaces the infected person touched or brushed against, such as tables, lockers, doorknobs, phones, and so on.
In The News
The MRSA infection can strike practically any part of the body, including the foot of this patient. Going barefoot outdoors and especially in gym locker rooms and showers is not a good idea. Staph bacteria can enter the body through small cracks, cuts, or wounds in the skin.
