I was just diagnosed with ca-mrsa and I'm scared since it is often resistant to drugs. I just started bactrim ds tonight. What are the chances of it not responding to any drug? How can you know if it's caught early enough? Thank you!

I was just diagnosed with ca-mrsa and I'm scared since it is often resistant to drugs. I just started bactrim ds tonight. What are the chances of it not responding to any drug? How can you know if it's caught early enough? Thank you!

Partially resistant: Ca MRSA is not particularly worse than having regular staph infection. It is not related to the flesh eating bacteria scare. The choice of antibiotics is limited, but generally the infection is sensitive to at least a few of the mainstream antibiotics of which Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is one. If your doctor thought you were at great risk you would not be at home.

Bactrim ds 800.2x daily for cellulitis. How long before improvement. I'm on day 3. If I were to have an allergic reaction would I know by now.? Ty

Yes,: However, there are still chances of developing allergic reaction later, but would be small and mild as time goes by. Regarding improvement, it depends on site, size, general condition, drugs used, etc, in general, if no improvement after few days, the management plan should be revisited, best wishes
