How can you get rid of this infection? A anti bacteria soap like Hibiclens can help remove the bacteria from your skin.
Special nasal creams can be used in you nose, where staph bacteria often hides. (Some doctors will not prescribe the nasal cream unless you are about to have an operation because overuse would make it drug resistant. They also worry that you’ll catch it again any way within weeks within the community.)
Drugs such Linezolid or Vancomycin dampen down or kill your bloodstream infection if MRSA has entered a wound. Bactrim is often used for those with the community strains. Some strains need different drugs so ask for information about which strain you have.
