Here is an astounding article that makes the case for the new terrible and resistant staph.
I was treating resistant staph when I was a lot younger. They are apparently living in a bubble?
Methicillin Resistant Staph is old news.

I will say that we think it’s a result of antibiotics for kids and we treat in my world with Bactrim/Septra double strength twice a day for a week and it works well.

If the family has a problem with recurring staph infections probably worthwhile reducing carrier rate by treating the noses of the members with antibiotic ointment.
