3 doctors agree
In brief: Differ on med
If MRSA is suspected of confirmed, i would have selected another medication.
The Erythromycin might work but if the wound/boil is not improving within a few days i would call your dr & discuss the matter.

In brief: Probably
If the MRSA was sensitive to Erythromycin that is fine.
