Clindamycin is very effective in treating MRSA, which is a type of staph bacteria that is resistant to penicillin.
It may take up to 10 days for the infection to clear while on the antibiotics.

Some people may carry MRSA in their nasal passages, but they usually do not have any symptoms, but can spread it to others that then have symptoms.

If you are having worsening symptoms since you started the antibiotics, then I would recommend going to your local Urgent Care or ER for further evaluation.

Does that help answer your question?

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.
