The MRSA is one of the emerging bacterai with an resistance to common drugs.

If you are having infection in post operative period then you should do following-

-Get the culture & sensitivity of the pus or tissue sample.

-There are some medicines like vancomycin,piperacillin,tazobactum,rifampicin which are very helpful in this.Please consult to a infectious disease specialist doctor for this.

-Take care of good hygeine.Wash the hands with soap & water recurrently ,avoid using cloths & utensils of others.

-Supplement your immune system wth chromium & zinc.

Hope this all will help you.

With best wishes.
