Hi there, I am sorry for the MRSA infection you got and pity that you did not take antibiotics. That is the final solution for MRSA (as it is difficult to get healed). Can you send a photo of the dark spot, so, can evaluate further? My thoughts are for possible gangrenous tissue due to damages (necrosis) of soft tissue from MRSA infection. Think it over and consult with your doctor ASAP!

Hi Josie MRSA is type of staphylo causing infection resistant to most of the penicillins. It can recur.

doctor1 MD

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
