Community acquired MRSA is common among athletes. It is acquired by not properly cleaning sports equipment that is used and/or sharing sports equipment. All sports equipment should be cleaned at least once a week. MRSA stands for methicillin resistant staphlococcus aureas and does not go away with traditional antibiotics. They often have to put you on vancomycin to treat it and once you have it, reoccurances are common. If you want a link just type community acquired MRSA into google. Hope this helps.
