Symptoms. The symptoms of MRSA will depend on the area of the body that is infected. Many people carry MRSA bacteria in their mucosa, for instance, inside the nose, but they may never develop symptoms that indicate an active infection.

Can you treat MRSA at home?

Dry sheets on the warmest setting possible. Bathe a child in chlorhexidine (HIBICLENS) soap or bath water with a small amount of liquid bleach, usually about 1 teaspoon for every gallon of bathwater. Both of these interventions can be used to rid the skin of MRSA.
