UV/ Sun kills skin MRSA?

My MRSA just came back in force. I had it about 3 months, had it treated, and it subsided. But I woke up two days ago with follicalitus on my thigh and an abscess on my buttocks. It always seems to colonize that way on me. the deeply infected abscess occurs on my buttocks. I assume because there is a lot of tissue and not much blood so it can dive quickly.
Anyways, I was thinking of going to a tanning spa to try if UV light would help kill this evil bug at all(?).
does anyone know anything about UV treatment for mrsa?
Thanks.

Are there any specific cases of these decolonizing people? thanks very much. I don't really see what the difference where I am. and i'm not in the united states by the way. I'm in south america.

I've had MRSA for 3yrs now and its not coming back that often now. I think i contracted the infection from my mum before she had her leg amputated with bad sores that wouldn't heal and due to her diabeties her circulation wasn't that good. I remember the first sore I had on my arm was no joke the size of an apple. the doctor lanced the abcess and got a medicine cup full of puss out of it. The hole the sore left took nearly a week to close up. since then i've had several sores but for some reason they prefer the buttocks and the legs. I had a swab done and found out that i had mrsa there were only 2 different antibiotics that can fight this bacteria at the time and had multiple courses of them. Then i found out this great soap you can get from the chemist called Phisohex. its a antibacterial soap that kills bacteria including mrsa on the skin and helps keep the skins usual ph balance. use phisohex use phisohex. im sure theres more antibacterial soaps availiable at a chemist but i know phisohex is what you get in australia. In the usa they may have other antibacterial soaps. thats how to get rid of mrsa i found out the hard way.
