I have been colonized with MRSA for about 4 years and have recently had recurrent mastitis. Every time my milk has been cultured it has come back positive for MRSA. I have been instructed to continue nursing. Could this potentially infect my baby? Also, is breastmilk a site that can just be continuously colonized with MRSA? Are there any other alternatives to treating the mastitis other than antibiotics? Every time in the past I have been on protocols/long-term antibiotics it has not helped clear infections but actually makes it come back worse. Thank you very much.
