In brief: Wrong question

MRSA is a type of bacteria.
There are many types of MRSA. Was it acquired in the hospital or in the community? Did it occur while taking an antibiotic? Is it boils or cellulitis or pneumonia or infected wound, etc. The best approach depends on the diagnosis. If it is an abscess, drainage, not antibiotic, is the correct approach.
