MRSA are contagious and can be acquired from the hospitals and community. These bacteria are present everywhere in the environment. Our skin also contains these bacteria without any symptoms. But whenever there is a cut, boil or wound on the skin, these bacteria grow and cause infection. Symptoms of the MRSA are formation of small red bumps which look like pimples, spider bite or boil. Then these bumps turn in to painful abscesses. So, only pimples on head and neck are not sign of MRSA.
