I have never heard of MRSA until last week. My sister is in
the hospital with it. She has is in her blood stream. She has
sores in her head and her hair is falling out. Her body is in
constant pain. She is on dialysis and her liver is failing. Is
there a cure for this infection. Can't seem to get a straight
answer from the doctor.

MRSA cannot be cured 100%.

Anti-biotics etc. can help minimizing the side effects (sores, blisters).
Washing the affected part of your skin with anti-bacterial soap would keep
the bacteria from growing again to a certain extent. But again, the MRSA
cannot be cured 100%. Even if the affected part of a body is no longer
showing MRSA sores, it does not mean that it is cured. The bacteria goes
dormant, and regular washing with anti-bacterial soap helps keeping dormant
and at bay.

Tricloscept soap can be very helpful in cleaning one's skin infected with
MRSA.
You should speak with a dermatologist, since MRSA affects the skin. If the
bacteria gets into the bloodstream, there could be serious consequences :(
