Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.

I would like to know the medicine that has been prescribed by your GP. In addition I would also like to have a look at the affected skin. You may upload a few images in "Reports Section" so that I am able to guide you better. Was the area swabed and cultured and antibiotic sensitivity performed? MRSA is resistant to multiple antibiotics therefore a culture and antibiotic sensitivity testing is a must.
