My 3 year old son has a mrsa infection. He was put on Bactrim but he's refusing to take and spitting it out. I called the doctor and they said there is no other antibiotics to put him on.
Any ideas?

I had this recently. It's horrible . If you have a second person that's better. But you can also do this yourself if you need to. Hold him tight and recline his head slightly to the back. Squirt the medicine into the back of his throat or the corner of his cheek. If he keeps spitting it out, pinch his nose so he swallows most of it. Like a newborn spit up, it looks like they're spitting out more than they actually are. You can ask the doctor about raising the dose slightly if you're concerned.

(Clindamycin is actually usually also an option, but it is by far more horrid smelling and tasting than Bactrim.)

I know this sounds really horrible but MRSA can be dangerous.

I don't know where the infection is but if possible, you can mix 1 ounce of Manuka Health honey mgo 400 or 550 with 10 drops of nutribiotic grapefruit seed extract. Slather on the infection. Cover with a gauze pad and wrap with a roll of gauze if possible, depending where it is. Change every 12 hours. IyH you should see it getting better within 24 hours.

Me and my kids are very prone to MRSA.
I tried the recommended 'segula's" and it helped bh.
*There's a product you could buy in the pharmacy over the counter- PRID. It's a thick black paste that you shmeer onto the MRSA. It's very effective.
*add Hibeclens liquid soap (pharmacy), when bathing.
*call an MR (Burn) specialist, (free) for recommendations on what to out into your bath to get rid of the infection. ***
*try the cream regimen that is recommended by MR for MRSA, it's a mix of several creams

***The mix to put into the bath is as following:
1 cup bleach
1 cup baking soda
1 TBS apple cider vinegar
Let the child sit in this bath for a while, it clears the infection pretty quickly.

I would not put hibiclens in the bath. You're better off applying it after the bath. Waiting a few seconds and rinsing it off. It's very effective though. And doesn't really sting even on open eczema.

Ask your dr to call in prescription Altabax. It’s a fortune. But magic.

Curious about the bath mix- I do similar for other things, but just wondering if the baking soda and vinegar don’t cancel each other out?

Where is the infection? There is also a clindamycin topical solution which is very helpful. Someone I know used it together with same thing orally and it helped a ton. Idk if it would help by itself or if it can be taken together with the medicine he’s taking now.

Did you try mixing it in frosting?

One idea I heard is to give a square of chocolate first - let it coat their mouth so the abx doesn’t taste as bad

Can you ask the pharmacist about flavorRX? Some flavors are kosher.

Clindamycin is another option but it tastes worse and is 3 times a day.
The most important thing when you have MRSA is to soak, soak, soak. Have your child sit in a nice warm tub (with 1/2 cup of bleach) at least twice a day every day for 30-45min. The heat brings the pus to the surface and at one point the skin will open and you'll be able to drain out the pus. Once it's draining, you're on the road to recovery.

I think that mixing Clindamycin with grape juice helps mask the taste.
