I would recommend adding Rifampin to any of the aformentioned regimens to help prevent recurrence. Rifampin has the unique ability to kill the bacteria in the nose where other antibiotics may not be able to reach.

As adjunctive therapy only; though never alone .

In brief: Antibiotics

Smz/tmp, vancomycin, Rifampin are still being used.
The best defense is hand washing.
