DD has never had it YAY. Her cousin (adult age) fought it for awhile. Why dont you trust your doctors information? I would just get a second opinion from another doctor.
I have personally never had to deal with that with my kids, but my grandkids were hospitalized for it, with IV antibiotics and drainage of the site.
Bactrin DS (sulfamethoxazole) and Bactroban ointment are the go to antibiotics for MRSA
I had it twice while I was pregnant with DS 7 years ago. I had to have them lanced open and packed. Given extreme antibiotics and no pain meds bc I was pregnant. Couldn't remove the bandage for a week then I had to keep the spot very very very very clean and wasn't allowed to shave a hair on my body till after my DS was delivered. Ugh sometimes I forget how much I hated being pregnant...
