The MRSA incubation period could be minutes or it could be decades. MRSA often lives quietly on your skin until you have a wound, nick or cut which it can compromise. You can be healthy and feeling no ill effects for a long time.
The PVL strainsSome MRSA strains carry a mutation that is known as known as PVL (the initials of the men who discovered it.) These strains may more aggressively create pores in your skin which become the foundation of skin infections. This is more common in the community strains which infect those with little or no hospital contact.
