Had MRSA a month ago, now slight fever

I was in the hospital for 8 days last month with MRSA I feltt fine after being
discharged except for how the bactrim made me feel. Now a month later I have a
very slight fever the highest it's been was 102.5 and that was only once. In the
morning when I wake I'm at 97-99 usually at night it starts to spike. Iv had the
fevers for about 3 days, but again I feel completely fine and have no lesions or
pain anywhere. Do I need to see a doctor or go to the ER?

Were you diagnosed with CA MRSA or HA MRSA? Did you have recent surgery and then get a MRSA infection. You haven't provided enough information. If you had HA (Hospital Acquired) MRSA, I would absolutely be concerned about ANY fevers. I'd ask to have bloodwork done. Your MRSA could be slowly creeping back. Were you on IV meds in the hospital, such as vancomycin or zyvox?
