How do I manage methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus daily?

Like with any bacterial infection, it is important to manage your methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by staying on your regimen of antibiotics. MRSA can be difficult to treat, so if you find that an antibiotic is working, it is important to stay on the medication to help relieve your symptoms and keep the infection from getting worse. Make sure to finish the course of antibiotics prescribed even if you feel well. Ask your doctor about ointments that can help relieve the topical skin symptoms like boils and blisters.
