Interested in any info regarding cellulitis wound culture positive for MRSA.
Patient was not hospitalized.  Curious as to how he could have contracted it.
He was in Boot Camp when 1st infection happened.  2nd and 3rd infections (the
3rd being a cellulitis of his arm with lymphadenitis) arose when he was at his
base.  Also curious as to how to test for carrier state and potential
reoccurance and prevention.
Thanks
