Hi there -
I don't know the answer to this, but you might post it in the STD experts forum. You can find the link on the right side of this page, and it does cost $15 USD to post a question.
Sorry I couldn't help.
Do a test, have them run a sensitivity analyisis. This should determin what antibiotic to administer. I just got over an uncomplicated case. See the doc. Tell him what you need and be persistant. If you have had staph for 10 years I feel bad, I had it for a month. It sucks.
Vancomycin and gentamycin in combination will cure staph infection as these are used when we deal with MRSA. Normally amoxycillin would do it.
What is the duration of treatment with vancomycin and gentamycin?
It dpends on the severity and location of infection. Normally resistant staph cases are monitored closely in order to judge this.
