Are there two types of MRSA? One on the skin and one internally? Is the one on skin referred to as MRSE?

I went online and goggled MRSE. It is very interesting. From what I understand ther are 4 different ones. I remember MRSA and MRSE, but can't remember the other 2. All are bad but MRSA is the worst. If you get a chance look them up. The first time I had MRSA. The second time I had MRSE. I had to be quarantined with MRSA but not with MRSE. Although, I had to use the same treatment (Vancamiycin) for both.

Hugs my precious sister
