Skin and Staph Infections
November 02, 2007
Staphylococcus aureus (staph) are bacteria that many healthy people carry on their skin or in their nose. Staph can sometimes cause serious infections like pneumonia, blood, or joint infections, and deep skin infections.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a type of staph that is not killed by penicillin and similar antibiotics. It causes skin infections especially among school children. Students, faculty and staff at schools should be sensitive to the possibility of disease transmission.

The California Department of Public Health has released information to address the concerns of the educational community in California about MRSA.
