First of all, not all skin infections are staphlococcal, not all staphlococcal infections are mrsa. Mrsa is short for methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, a potentially dangerous type of staphlococcus bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics and may cause skin and other infections. As with all regular staphlococal infections, recognizing the signs and receiving treatment for skin infections in the early stages reduces the chances of the infection becoming severe. Staph infections of the skin appear as a bump or infected area and may also be red, swollen, painful, warm to the touch. If there is evidence of liquid underneath, or a head, it may be full of pus and will need to be drained. If accompanied by a fever or red streaks around the skin, this may be evidence of spread.
Mupirocin is used as a topical treatment for localized bacterial skin infections, including treatment of mrsa. But with all "superficial" infections, except for minor redness, pain or light drainage, if any of the other symptoms listed above are found, you should see your physician for consideration for a systemic, either oral or injection antibiotic. ...Read more

Clobex/children: It is safe to use in kids 12 and older. Under age 12, it is a pretty hefty steroid to use for a kid. It is a steroid, and a fairly potent one at that. Kids can absorb it through their skin and it can then affect them as if they ingested it. I would use a lower potency steroid on a kid under 12, although there are occasions when a stronger one is needed — close monitoring is then needed as well ...Read more
Most likely safe: Meladerm is an over the counter skin lightening agent. It contains no prescription medications. It does have some acids used for chemical peels so be careful not to overuse it.

There is very little safety data on it, but there are some reports of lung inflammation, so talk with your doctor. ...Read more

Not Recommended: Greetings. I would not recommend the use of Halonate on a child if it was not prescribed by a Dermatologist. Because it is categorized as a "super high potency" topical steriod, it can have serious side effects when used incorrectly. High potency creams and ointments can be asorbed easily through the skin and cause malfunction to certain organs. Best regards. ...Read more
