In brief: Treat it again
Recurrence of MRSA skin infections is common.
Use of nasal Mupirocin and bathing using Hexachlorophene containing soaps may help to reduce or eliminate the carrier state which predisposes to recurrence. The important thing is to treat the current outbreak with an appropriate antibiotic. There are several oral choices which your doctor can recommend.
