Absolutely not: This is an extremely dangerous, potentially life threatening infection, that requires treatment with the specific antibiotics to which the MRSA is sensitive, and close supervision.

Absolutely not: Mrsa that has penetrated through enough of your defense mechanisms and immune system to get into the lung is a serious problem it must be treated with prescription antibiotics, and may require longer courses of treatment. Do not treat this infection yourself!
