MRSA only in nostrils?

Where did the whole concept that MRSA can be treated by dabbing antibiotics in yours nostrils come from? Obviously MRSA gets into your system quickly, and if it is in your nostrils it is probably every else. Frankly it seems idiotic.

Does dabbing mupirocin in nostrils accomplish anything at all?

It's an attempt to decolonize similar to
chlorhexidine body washes. Theory being combat
MRSA externally by attempting to decolonize
while internally via antibiotics. Unfortunately,
neither seem to effectively totally eradicate

I believe it comes from the fact that MRSA bacteria can live in one's nares without affecting a person who is a carrier but whose resistance is high and they don't get it themselves but others with weaker immune systems can become infected. If one can kill the MRSA bacteria in a carrier's nose, they are less of hazard to others of the problems is that antibiotics are less able to kill bacteria as they once were due to antibiotic resistance. Eventually, pharmaceutical antibiotics will not be able to kill any bacteria, at all. Then, everyone will have real problems.

Actually, there is a more effective way of dealing with bacteria and that is with ancient herbal folk remedy of garlic. Garlic is immune to antibiotic resistance, which only affects pharmaceutical antibiotics but not natural antimicrobials, which kill in a more direct way. To find out how it works and why, please read my posts in this forum. I can't give anyone any advice but I can discuss the properties of natural garlic and how they change depending on how it is processed and used. People and their doctors can decide for themselves what, if anything, to do. I post to give people a better understanding of garlic and how and why it does the things it does. My posts are strictly educational, not advisory.

I'm not sure that mupirocin even works for
some given antibiotic resistance.
