MRSA is a resistant bacterial infection.
The bacteria lives on the skin and the nostrils.
Working in the hospital is a risk factor.
The best action is to start antibiotic treatment.
Su;famethoxazole-trimethoprim is the standard antibiotic used to treat MRSA infection.
The treatment should be continued for 1 week at least.
Also mupirocin nasal ointment can applied twice daily for 5 days in the nostrils to eliminate any residing MRSA.
These antibiotics can be prescribed by her GP.
Please do not panic---this is fully treatable infection.
