Chronic MRSA colonisation is a difficult problem to overcome. There are a variety of decolinisation protocols available typical prescribed an managed by Infectious Disease experts. This is not an easy problem to overcome otherwise hospitals would have solved this long ago. Schedule a visit with an ID expert to discuss what you have tried so far and what can be done next to improve the odds.
