First let me say, I have never had issues with internal MRSA - just skin lesions. My heart breaks for folks with internal MRSA.
But I wanted to share what has worked for me. Things aren't perfect but bearable. I haven't been to this forum in a long time but I got lots of good ideas here.
My first MRSA boil was in 2007 but I haven't used antibiotics since 2013. I just got fed up with so many recurring boils and antibiotics. You can't live your life on antibiotics!!
LED light therapy has allowed me to get on with my life by quickly healing soft tissue boils. I have an LED array with Red, Blue, and Infrared light. I use all three on any spots of any kind that pop up on my skin. Usually, any MRSA boils are gone in a couple of days but I sometimes have stubborn boils that need more attention. I use essential oils in tandem with the light therapy. Oh - I also have an LED light array that looks like a toothbrush so I can use it in my nostrils. That thing has been a true miracle for me.
I never found garlic to be very helpful. Manuka honey may have helped some. For me, essential oils are helpful for preventing an outbreak, and they help heal MRSA. But I don't think essential oils have, on their own, ever healed a boil for me. I never got brave enough to try bleach baths so that might be helpful for some folks.
We live in Virginia where it is impossible to get to see an ID doctor, so I've had to figure it out on my own. I've worked hard to strengthen my immune system, and these days I have only occasional boils - usually after a virus or something has lowered my immune system. I am thinking about trying diatomaceous earth to try and slow things down even more. Hope this is helpful!

I am thinking about trying light therapy! I am glad it worked for you. What light do
you use? (What brand)... I have MRSA pimples all over my body in random spots
and now it is beginning to be ok my face😭 Light therapy is my only option at this
point because my face is sensitive and oily and I can't use essential oils on it
