In brief: By mouth,injn,local?

The antibiotics's response on staphylococcus - not the resistant types is good.
There is aparticular type called mrsa- methicillin resistant staph. Aureus which is resistant to pcn gp . Of antibiotics and most of the times resistant to other commonly used antibiotics. Based on the type of infection and culture ands ensitivity results of blood/pus/wound culture etc we treat them when implicated.
