Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus - Preparing for surgery

If you are an MRSA carrier…

People who are carriers of MRSA usually do not need to be treated unless they are going for an operation. Pre-operation treatment involves applying topical antibiotic creams to the inside of the nose and using a special antiseptic shampoo and body wash. In rare cases, oral antibiotics may be necessary. Your doctor will be able to advise you.

The treatment has few side effects. Generally, any side effects will be mild, such as skin irritation. If you develop a rash, stop treatment and ask your clinic or doctor for advice.
