Developing MRSA while currently on Bactrim?

I developed a boil in late July that went
from what I thought was a tiny bug bite to
rather large sore in 3 days. I didn't even
think it was a boil because it was always
open (like a cut). It tested positive for
MRSA ofcourse, and I was put on Bactrim
for 10 days (2x a day) and it seemingly
went away. In the first of September , i
developed another boil right next to the
scar from the first one. This one was also
"open" (it didn't need to come to a head )
and also went from 0-100 in 3 days. I
again tested positive for MRSA and i was
again placed on Bactrim for 10 days 2× a
day. As this was a more serious case, i
was also given 3 months of refills at a
maintenance dose (1× a day ).
Now in mid-november, i have rapidly
developed another boil in the same area.
What are the chances it is MRSA if i am
currently on bactrin, and have been for
around 2 months? I know MRSA came about by
becoming immune to regular antibiotics,
could this have possibly happened?
