How do you know if you have mrsa (staph Infection)?
I dont know if i have a zit or mrsa. Its on my left upper thigh. Right now its kind of small, not really big. Its kinda red and my mom popped most of it out. As of now it does not hurt and i do not feel sick or anything.

"How do you know if you have mrsa (staph Infection)?" -- Are you asking about a methicillin resistant Staph infection, a methicillim susceptible Staph infection or both? Here's an answer that covers it all. You know when your doctor has received the culture and sensitivity report and tells you. @ "carly", you can't tell by redness, pain or size if this involves a methicillin-resistant organism, a vancomycin-resistant organism, an Amikacin-resistant organism or ANY kind of antibiotic-resistant organism.

The only way to determine staph or MRSA is to have cultures done. There is no way to know by looking at it. You are certainly asking this a LOT.

I had mrsa. My school was like the production center of it, I swear. Mine didn't hurt either until like 2 days after I noticed a zit thingy right above my knee. Then, it hurts like crazy. If it's mrsa it will get bigger an redder and more painful. Don't squeeze it, it will just get worse. If you are really concerned you could go to the doctor and they'll tell you what they think. But, if it starts hurting, go to the doctor. It's not fun to have at all. And, it doesn't make you feel sick at all. The area just hurts.

You go to a doctor and they tell you. You run the risk of infecting people around you if it is staph, chances are you have a pimple or a cyst though. Staph is VERY contagious.
