How can someone get MRSA from a person who was treated and cured?

While the disease caused by MRSA may have been cured, it doesn't mean that the person doesn't carry any MRSA germs on his or her body. Many, many people are colonized with MRSA -- it lives on them without causing disease. "Cure" in the case of a MRSA-related rash or boil means that the skin problem is cured, but not that all MRSA has been eliminated from the person. A related question: how do you know that you're not colonized with MRSA yourself?

How long are you contagious with mrsa before you show signs?

MRSA (methylcillian resistant staph aureus) is a staph infection that is resistant to most antibiotics. There are many kinds of staph germs. If you have MRSA your infection will not "look" any different than someone with non-MRSA staph. A person can "carry" the MRSA germ without ever actually having the infection. If they have an open wound, the germ can infect it (via touch/contact) and cause the wound to have a hard time healing until super strong antibiotics are used. Once someone has MRSA, they are considered "positive" always. Summary: You can be "contagious" and NEVER show symptoms.
