There are different types of MRSA.
Staph skin infections, including MRSA, generally start as small red bumps that resemble pimples, boils or spider bites. These can quickly turn into deep, painful abscesses that require surgical draining. Sometimes the bacteria remain confined to the skin. But they can also penetrate into the body, causing potentially life-threatening infections in bones, joints, surgical wounds, the bloodstream, heart valves and lungs.
MRSA infection is caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria — often called "staph." MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It's a strain of staph that's resistant to the broad-spectrum antibiotics commonly used to treat it. MRSA can be fatal.

Most MRSA infections occur in hospitals or other health care settings, such as nursing homes and dialysis centers. It's known as health care-associated MRSA, or HA-MRSA. Older adults and people with weakened immune systems are at most risk of HA-MRSA.

Update: More recently, another type of MRSA has occurred among otherwise healthy people in the wider community. This form, community-associated MRSA, or CA-MRSA, is responsible for serious skin and soft tissue infections and for a serious form of pneumonia. PA Prison Systems are testing to help elevate the health risk through out the system by detecting & protecting the citizens from this deadly virus during intake.
All examples can be found at The Mayo Clinic Staff Page and by googeling MRSA under google Images for visual clarification of real cases. Of course the only good answer is to be seen by your doctor as quickly as possible and limit all contact in the mean while. Most states offer some type of free health clinics and walk in centers for thoses of us without some type of health insurance. If you get treatment right away you limit your risk of developing internal infections which can lead to a death. If you have something that even remotely looks like this and your not sure then get seen by your doctor as quickly as possible, at the very least you will reduce your stress levels immediatly.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus
A break out at Mt. Greylock Regional High School, as well as thousands of other high schools in the United States of America. Commonly known as a staph infection; this bad ass disease kills bitches. It spreads from sweaty middle school boys touching each other in the locker rooms.
October 17th, Mt. Greylock Regional High School had to evacuate its premises to cleanse the school of MRSA.

MRSA, or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (Pronounced Mursa) is a game played in City Charter High School, originated in Team B, in which the participants run up to one another, slap each other in the face, scream MRSA, and run away, thus leaving the slapee with MRSA. They then go and slap someone else, in an ongoing epidemic of MRSA.
"DOOD! Nate just ran up to me and slapped me! I GOT FUCKIN' MRSA!"

*slap*"MRSA bitch!"

Mega Retarded Steph Aids - pronounced MUR SUH

Its a viral infection similar to STAIDS

Mega Retarded Steph Aids - is running rife through the town of Alsager, people are being infected left and right. However its curious as to how this occurs as you can only catch it off the host. It's widely assumed the host must have been getting round a bit. The Alsager populous that attend university are dreading returning home after term ends because of the risk of infection and because of lost loved ones.

Note: It is believed the original infection was contracted by the host after performing sexual relations on frozen faeces.
"Get away from me you MRSA tramp"

Guy A: *eyes up the host*
Guy B: Wouldn't touch that mate, MRSA

Mum... Dad... I have MRSA *hangs head in shame*

MRSA is taking the nation by storm. Recently overblown in exaggerated media reports, high school and college students are dying left and right due to this highly contagious and sexy disease.
It stands for "Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus." Just kidding. It's "Most Rapists Start Aviating."
Unfortunately, MRSA can only be cured by AIDS, and AIDS can only be cured by MRSA. This presents a baffling catch-22 that only the brightest of liberal arts school dropouts can rationalize.
If you have MRSA you are recommended to report it to the media ASAP. Tell your doctor once you have talked to at least 5 news sources.
Jerome: Yo homes, what that boil be up on yo' arm?
Chlamydia: I ain't sure dawg... think it's MRSA?
Willoughby: I'm a docta son, lemme check that shit out.

MRSA is running for office as Barack Obama's VP.

Howie Mandel: The banker has offered you AIDS instead of MRSA. Deal... or no deal?
Contestant: But I only went to community college!
