I never heard of a staph or mrsa (which is one in the same), come to a head like a pimple, or boil. It is a infection, but it sounds like a boil or abscess.I worked in a hospital, and was told I got mrsa due to the patients I took care of. I had no signs of having it and had many surgeries and NO infections.
