In brief: Staphylococcus

Now a days many of us are colonized with MRSA.
It doesn't necessarily mean we will develop any increased infection rates as compared to MSSA which is also all over us. While technically speaking Cleocin, Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and Rifampin may work..don't be surprised if it doesn't. Zyvox is an excellent oral medication for severe infections. Hibiclens is far superior to Dial. Twice a week use after bathing
