MRSA infections can start off from a simple staphylococcus bacterium which can begin from an individual's skin or nose and start spreading inside the body if there are any open cuts or bruises.

Many people pass on MRSA infection to others in the community especially after leaving hospitals and that is the most common reason for the spreading of this infection.

The number of people getting infected from MRSA infection has gradually increased in the past few years in the community especially in the USA. The infection is very uncommon in UK as compared to other countries. Many research studies concluded that the patients who get infected by MRSA infection in the community have different strains of MRSA from the patients who have this infection from hospitals.

Studies also showed how community associated MRSA patients can spread infections to healthy people because they do not have the risk factors as compared to the already sick people in the hospitals. Main reason being these strains have a certain toxin which contributes heavily to their increased ability to spread infections.

However, many antibiotics have been introduced in the community and it has been proved by research that these antibiotics work best on community based MRSA infected people as compared to those who contract it in the hospital.
