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 was honest with my original answer.
You need to see your doctor to see if there is any evidence of persistent infection.
