When should I see a doctor for MRSA?
Answer: “The most common manifestation of MRSA is a skin infection that appears suddenly and with no remembered injury,” says Steve Kuriyama, M.D., a board-certified infectious disease physician. “The sore often starts as a small red bump and may spread rapidly. See your health care provider if you have skin lesions that are painful, persistent or accompanied by fever or chills.”
