In brief: Check the nose

People who suffer from chronic outbreaks of MRSA are often carriers of this bacteria on their body.
The nostrils are often a culprit. This can be treated with a topical antibiotic ointment in a specific way. I would speak to your doctor about culturing the nostrils and treating the nostrils to eradicate any nasal MRSA carriage there.
