How is MRSA treated?

As its name implies, MRSA is more resistant to common antibiotics than non-MRSA infections and hence can be more difficult to treat. However, infections caused by MRSA can usually be treated with a few specific antibiotics. Treatment may require an intravenous drip or hospitalisation and can be more costly or have more side effects. Surgery or drainage of pus may be necessary if present. It is important to complete the antibiotic course as recommended by your doctor even if the infection is improving.
