MRSA: Where do you have the skin infection? You could wash your skin with an anti microbial soap such as dial or hibiclens and then put on any moisturizer that you like. Use a new tube or bottle of it so that the moisturizer is uncontaminated. More importantly, MRSA is not a permanent condition (eg. Like herpes) so it can be cured.

A variety of skin care regimens ranging from gentle cleansers with appropriate moisturizers and exfoliation with the possible prescription of oral or topical retinoids may be a good beginning.

I have a reddish skin and have a lot of pimples on my forehead . I have tired all the methods such as cream , moisturizer . How do I reduce them ?

Real acne Rx: Forget creams and moisturizers. They don't work. You're almost a grown man & you have a right to effective rx. Benzoyl peroxide for two weeks, then as that probably won't get the job done, visit your physician. A retinoic acid derivative and/or Clindamycin topically is likely to clear the disease you describe; harder cases respond to systemic antibiotics or accutane. Good luck. ...Read more
