What Are Some Sources for Pictures of a MRSA Skin Infection?

The official website for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC.gov, offers pictures of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, skin infections. In addition, WebMD publishes a 17-slide slideshow of MRSA pictures.

CDC.gov offers photos of MRSA skin infections along with information about the infection. The infection appears as boils or pustules that may be red, painful, and swollen with drainage or pus, notes the CDC. Usually, the infection occurs near areas of visible trauma. On WebMD, the slideshow of MRSA pictures includes up-close views of the infection, views of the infection compared to a spider bite, and slides featuring general information about MRSA and how to avoid getting it.
