MRSA is a type of bacterial infection that is resistant to several widely used antibiotics, which makes it difficult to treat. The overuse of antibiotics in recent years has played a major part in antibiotic resistance and superbugs. Infections can be treated with antibiotics that MRSA has not yet developed resistance to. The exact antibiotic used will depend on the specific strain of MRSA involved.
