MRSA stands for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus. 

What does the MRSA cell do?

MRSA is a bacteria cell.These cells reproduce asexually. This cell travels through other human cells.This cell moves around other cells infecting them one by one. This cell moves with its flagella.

What is MRSA?

MRSA is a bacterium that causes infections in different parts of the body. MRSA is tougher to treat than most strains of staphylococcus aureus or staph because it is resistant to some commonly used antibiotics. When antibiotics don't work bad things like an extra visit to the doctor and extended hospital stays or death may occur,  According to and Alliance For The Prudent Use Of Antibiotics

Treatment for MRSA:

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, You can treat MRSA by covering your wounds, keeping them covered, and avoid touching others. Clean your hands often, and make sure people who are close to you on a daily basis wash their hands often and well also. Avoid sharing personal items such as clothes and towels. If you are forced to share, make sure to wash the item thoroughly using laundry detergent.

Prevention of MRSA:

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, You can prevent MRSA by making sure to keep good hygiene and wash your hands often. Keep scrapes, cuts, or wounds covered until they heal. Avoid sharing towels and other personal items. Make sure to see a doctor if you think you might be infected.


According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, symptoms include swollen, red, painful, pus filled skin. If you notice these symptoms contact you doctor immediately and avoid going into public places.

How many people have MRSA?

According to WebMD and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1% of people carry it but many of them aren't infected, but if you do find somebody with it that is infected you can get it as simple as just touching them. However, MRSA is so resistant to antibiotics it kills thousands of people each year.

How do you get MRSA?

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and WebMD, MRSA is caused by common bacteria that can live in our bodies. 
Plenty of healthy people carry MRSA/staph without being infected by it. But staph can be a problem if it manages to get into the body, often
through a cut. Once there, it can cause an infection. Staph is one of the most common causes of skin infections in the U.S. Usually, these are
minor and don't need special treatment. Less often, staph can cause serious problems like infected wounds or pneumonia. Staph can usually
be treated with antibiotics. But over the decades, some strains of staph -- like MRSA -- have become resistant to antibiotics that once
destroyed it. MRSA was first discovered in 1961. It's now resistant to methicillin, amoxicillin, penicillin, oxacillin, and many other antibiotics.
