Hello from JustAnswer.

The issue here is not whether you will get colonized with Staph, as virtually everyone can have Staph growing on the skin on different days. When dealing with an infection with resistant Staph, the issue is whether you will become colonized with the resistant Staph. MRSA refers to Staph that is resistant to methicillin.

Most people do not get colonized. However, some people do get colonized, and it is impossible to know which people will get colonized and there is no evidence that any particular treatment of the infection will lower the risk of developing colonization. The usual approach at this point is to attend to the infection.

I didn't really understand your first question there is no infection right now I did three nasal swabs they came back negative and I did a sputum test and it came back negative a few days ago I had staff pneumonia
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I meant to say back in July I had staff pneumonia
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
But I did the sputum test a few days ago test results came back negative
Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 1 year ago

You need to see your doctor to see if there is any evidence of persistent infection.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
