I have recurring MRSA that just won't stop. Contracted it 5 yrs ago had outbreaks ever since. Why won't it go away? Please help.
My family's battled CA-MRSA for 3 yrs. Did everything advised to the letter & more! How is it considered curable if it doesn't ever stop coming back?
Really hard.: People have certain germs on their skin and which ones are very hard to change. BUT 100% of people have staph on their skin. 10% have staph that can give infection, and 1% have MRSA. Having the germ means you can get a skin infection from it, but it doesnt mean you will. Prevention of skin abrasions/rips is the best preventative. ...Read more

I believe the problem is likely from immune defect in the nasal area thereby leading to recurrent infection. Although some staphs are normal residents on the skin (S epider-mides), others are not and only few are MRSA. Suggest that you try daily saline irrigation and avoid picking your nose. ...Read more

More dangerous staph: Mrsa stands for mehticillin resistant stapholoccus aureus. A staph that is resistant to many common antibiotics. Often it is also more aggressive than other staph germs. It must be cultured and treatment guided by the antibiotics the lab shows will work. It is often spread to others in the household and they should be looked at. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
