MRSA is not always THE bacteria that causes boils, but it one of them and its becoming more common. You MUST use antibiotics, and strong ones to treat it. it stands for methacillin resistant staph aureous…(I'm not a good speller) This is a bacteria, not a virus so it responds to antibiotics. If you don't use antibiotics and make sure it gone, it becomes even more resistant and potentially dangerous…it can get into you bloodstream, then you're sunk.

No, MRSA is not always the bacteria that causes boils. Boils can be caused by other strains of germs, although MRSA tends to be a more difficult type to treat, due to its limited range of antibiotic sensitivities. In large studies, the most important treatment for a boil is to lance it and drain it out, even being more important than taking an antibiotic.
