This is Dr. David

usually mupirocin (Bactroban) ointment is the first line of therapy for MRSA in your nostrils

I'm surprised your doctor didn't prescribe you bactroban

this is much easier to use. just some ointment on a Q tip inside of of your nostril

and you also need hibiclens soap for washing for the rest of your body to kill any MRSA infection which could be on your skin.

did your doctor recommend these for you?
