Hi and Welcome to HCM, MRSA infection is treatable. Nothing to worry. It is resistant to some antibiotics. Take Bactrim and Vancomycin course. If you have pain due to skin boil incision and drainage can be done. Very important is take all medicines as prescribed by your doctor with full course, if not some of the staph bacteria may survive. Wish you speedy recovery, Thank you

doctor1 MD

You may need topical mupirocin drops and also may need Clindamycin or Linezolid as MRSA treatment. You will lso need to eradicate MRSA from skin
