Detailed Answer:
Hi,
MRSA is usually a hospital acquired infection, and definitely it needs extensive treatment.
On Out patient basis, i prefer to use usually medicines like Linezolid for this purpose.
These medicines are being given for long time and shows very good results.
However, obtaining an Culture sensitivity is must in order to find out which antibiotic is absolutely sensitive for the bacteria.
Based on the culture report the antibiotic can be changed.
Resistant cases are treated with Meropenem or Vancomycin.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query,please ask me.
