Abstract

Among pediatric and adult providers, 70% preferred trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for directed treatment of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus skin and soft-tissue infections, although a higher proportion of pediatric compared with adult providers favored clindamycin (36% vs 8%, respectively, P < .0001). For recurrent infections, 88% of providers employed at least 1 topical decolonization strategy.
