MRSA, Staph Infection Symptoms

Last Updated: October 25th, 2010

Staph Infections and MRSA have exactly the same symptoms. MRSA is a type of staph infection that is resistant to antibiotic treatment -- the terms "staph infection" and "mrsa" are not associated with the severities of the conditions.

The main staph infection symptoms are listed below, however this is not in any way a self-diagnosis. Staph infections and MRSA are often mistaken for other conditions and vice versa. Only laboratory tests will confirm that you have a staph infection.

  • Tiny, red bumps like bites or pimples just starting
  • If these marks start to grow into a boil with water or pus
  • Carbuncles, which are large infections with openings on the skin causing pus, water, or blood to ooze out
  • Pus under your skin which is a yellowish, thick substance, oftentimes with a malodorous smell, also known as impetigo
  • An eyelid infection, commonly known as a sty
  • Cellulitis which are skin infections with fatty tissues under your skin
  • Swelling and tenderness in the affected area
  • Pain that gets worse every time you move the area
  • Edema or water retention
  • Sepsis which is toxins in the blood
  • Pneumonia
  • Periostitis, which happens when the tissue around the bones starts to get infected
  • Appendicitis, meningitis, peritonitis, pyoderma, eczema
  • Influenza
  • Skin lesion
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Clotting of an enzyme known as coagulase which is produces by MRSA
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fever or chills
  • Muscle, chest, bone, and joint pains
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Headaches
  • Low blood pressure

Technically, since MRSA symptoms can be widespread and numerous, the patient must understand that it happens mainly because the immune system is not working properly and the body cannot fight the spread of the bacteria.

Remember, some of these MRSA symptoms are also symptoms of other diseases, which means that a culture of the infection must be tested in a lab to determine cause. At any rate, the urgency to seek medical attention, regardless of whether or not the patient is in pain, is imperative. Do not wait for it to get worst because this will result in prolonged treatment and possible confinement in the hospital.

If you disregard a growing boil or pain in the affected area, you risk the following major medical problems:

  • Blood poisoning
  • Internal abscesses which could affect heart valves, joints, or any artificial element in your body
  • Lung infection
  • Edema
  • Septic shock
  • Endocarditis or heart lining infection
  • Bone marrow infection
