MRSA starts as a skin infection. Compared to several other skin conditions, people with staph infections experience less discomfort. However, with methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, the pain is worse, and as the infection spreads, the pain increases substantially.

Discomfort also accompanies the other MRSA symptoms, such as fever and muscle and joint aches. Anyone experiencing painful, small bumps with a fever should contact their health care provider to investigate the cause.
