Staph aureus is a bacteria that lives on the skin. MRSA is methillen resistant staph aureus and we do get it in some patient but it will usually cause boils all over the body. You may have hidradenitis see
This can be treated by local antibiotics or oral antibiotics treatment - discuss with your doctor. If boils develop it needs to be drained. If it is really bad, they can remove the affected glands totally.
