Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus The incidence of MRSA wound infection and osteomyelitis is increasing. Isolation of MRSA from a wound, however, does not require treatment in the absence of clinical signs of infection. Topical antimicrobial agents, such as iodine and silver compounds, have activity against MRSA and may be used in localised wound infection when there is no evidence of invasion, cellulitis, or systemic upset. In a systemically unwell individual, a glycopeptide (vancomycin or teicoplanin) should be administered.

In general, topical antibiotics are not recommended. Reasons for this include inadequate penetration for deep skin infections, development of antibiotic resistance, hypersensitivity reactions, systemic absorption when applied to large wounds, and local irritant effects leading to further delay in wound healing. Short courses of silver sulfadiazine or topical metronidazole can be useful, however, in certain circumstances—for example, with burns and chronic ulcers. Osteomyelitis associated with wound infection Necrotising fasciitis Topical antimicrobial preparations x Iodine releasing agents (povidone-iodine preparations, cadexomer-iodine preparations) x Potassium permanganate solution x Silver releasing agents (composite silver dressings, silver sulfadiazine) x Topical antibiotic (metronidazole) Osteomyelitis may develop after direct inoculation of bone from a contiguous focus of infection.
