My daugther has been getting abcesses on and off since she was about 7-8mos onld. I just learned that it's this bacteria called "mrsa" that causes these. Same treatment every time, bactrim and hope it 'pops'. this go 'round, she's throwing up after 6 days of antibiotic, and it's taking longer to go away. It's always in her privates / bum area. She's only 2. ANY info anyone has on this, is going to help. The Dr's say it's nothing to worry about b/c it's only on her skin, but it keeps coming back.Answer Question

MRSA is very common and it is on most people's skin. Some MRSA infections are very serious, but ones on the skin are common. They are a nuisance, but not dangerous. If you want to get a second opinion go ahead, but it's not like your doctor is totally off base. It's pretty run of the mill stuff most of the time.

MRSA infections can be very serious or just terribly persistent like your daughters. Either way, I would call the doc about your daughter's reaction to the antibiotics. You might also seek a second opinion from another doctor.
