Another symptom of MRSA infection is Erysipelas, a condition that affects the upper dermis and can spread into the cutaneous lymphatics. It is also called the “St Anthony’s fire” because of the intense rashes that are associated with it. This skin infection usually appears as a red bump that seems like shiny rashes. It would appear on the arms, fingers, toes, and legs.
Erysipelas affects the topmost layer of the skin but can spread further into the lymph nodes. The lesions will grow very quickly and can have a raised and distinct edge. If you have this condition, your skin’s texture will look like an orange peel. More than 80% of Erysipelas infection involves the lower extremities and can appear after trauma in a certain area of the skin or right after surgery.
