This is Dr. David

are you asking if you can get MRSA from sex?

MRSA is a rare methacillin or penicillin resistant staph aureus bacteria skin infection which can be transmitted from skin to skin contact.

if you have sex with someone who has MRSA on their skin, you could get MRSA infection on your skin.

but this type of transfer is rare

let me know if you have questions.
