Welcome to JA!
Thanks for the question.
Treatment of staphylococcus depends on the site and severity of infection; type of staphylococcus bacteria (non-mrsa or mrsa)
Penicillin is the drug of choice if the S. aureus isolate is sensitive to penicillin. Penicillin G
Nafcillin or oxacillin or
Cefazolin is recommended for patients with penicillin allergy that does not involve an anaphylactic reaction
Alternative agents for those patients who are intolerant to beta-lactams and vancomycin and should be guided by the results of susceptibility testing. Daptomycin
Vancomycin remains the antibiotic of choice for the treatment of invasive MRSA infections or vancomycin in combination with rifampicin or gentamycin
The choice of antibiotic is a difficult process and depends upon the susceptibility results and is always done by an experienced physician. so if you are having any infection, consult a physician to run necessary tests to determine whether it is S.aureus infection or not and if it is, which antibiotic to use
What symptoms do you have? Or What disease you have been diagnosed? What treatment are you taking?
