In brief: No

You are now more likely to have repeat MRSA infections so being seen quickly for infections will help as well as using hibiclens soap for a month.
It is not forever....But MRSA can spread in families so a little extra precaution goes a long way. It is not necessary to test after the treatment as the culture said what antibiotic is best.
