Because of the emergence of antibiotic resistance to strains of methicillin-resistant staphlacoccus aureus, the first line drug of choice is Bactrim DS (sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim).

*[Editor]  Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) "is a serious threat to patients in health care facilities and the community. A MRSA infection can be much more severe than other bacterial infections and can be life-threatening. Resistance to common antibiotics makes treating MRSA costly and difficult. Prolonged hospitalization requiring specialized IV antibiotics also has cost implications. Treatment of MRSA can include use of antibiotics; topical therapies such as honey, topical silver, and gentian violet; and bacteriophages. Research is being conducted on new antibiotics and a MRSA vaccine".

Published guidelines about the use of colloid silver are reported. The Editor has had the unsolicited testimony of a man and his spouse who both claim that intravenous colloidal silver cleared a M.R.S.A. infection in the eye socket. He was completely recovered. The contacted physician declined to document his treatment.
