I thought my doctor was order an oral antibiotic as well as a topical antibiotic but this is when she prescribed. Anyone else using it for MRSA?

How soon can I expect to see a clearing of the skin infection?
If you have MRSA using triamcinolone is the worst way you can go. Steroids support infection, not get rid of them. Didn't she think it was MRSA? I can't imagine any dr just ordering steroid cream for MRSA. Do not use it and contact her asap.
Triamcinolone wont kill MRSA infection. This cream is only good for redness and itching of an allergic dermatitis or something like that is non-infectious. It isnt good for any kind of bacterial infections, resistant or not! It is contraindicated in the presence of fungal, viral or bacterial infections.
