CA-MRSA: Treatment of MRSA infection depends on where the infection is & how ill the patient is. For eg, treatment for MRSA infection in the blood is differs from MRSA infection on the skin. It also depends if it's hospital or community acquired. If uncomplicated skin infection, eg abscess, i&d, bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) clidna, zyvox are a good start until antibiotic sensitivity is available at 48 hours.
