I had MRSA for 2 years. First treatments, from a doctor, were sufla drugs for a month at a time. I was told that it would continue to return. I found the sufla typy drugs unacceptable as you should not be in the sun while taking them. While I was in the hospital for a heart problem, I was isolated due to the MRSA and the nurses would have to wear golves and sterilize when they left. I asked what they used for hands.. they said alcohol....MRSA hates alcohol. I used alcohol, full strength 90% on a red spot, whether or not I thought it would become a boil and soaked it with a swab or makeup type blotter several times a day until it was gone...yes GONE. I recently had a couple of procedures done where they thought they would have to isolate me again... and did... until I had two tests, two weeks apart... that showed I was MRSA free!... alcohol did the trick!
