6 Times And Tired Of Counting

I have been battling mrsa for a year and a half. This is my 6th outbreak. Some are worse then others but i've been treated each time with infusions. Some up to 45 days and others as little as a week. Mostly i've been given vancomyicin . (spelling?)I was wondering if anyone has been treated for a preventative. I have another appointment on Jan 22 with a new doc and would like to hear some suggestions. Thanks

I had my first infection last July. I have since had four mire since then. Last time I was treated with doxycycline and rifampin. I am a 65 yr old female. I get really depressed at times just thinking about fighting these infections and wondering what the future holds. Just once I would like to read about someone who has overcome this and their life is back to normal. So far there's no one.

I was just diagnosed with mrsa. My outbreak consists of huge abcesses all over my neck upper back between my breasts my chin and chest. I have severe migraines and joint pain. Im only 20.. i feel emotionally drained
