Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Not every staphylococcus aureus from wound culture is MRSA. However, in recent years complicated wounds are increasingly showing growth of MRSA.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
