MRSA is the common cause of diabetic foot infections. By the market survey, 26 drugs were found to be present in various antidandruff herbal preparations and were selected for the present study. Aqueous extract of these drugs were screened for antibacterial activity on MRSA .During this research this was observed that out of 26 extracts 11 showed more consistent and prominent antimicrobial activity in terms of zone of inhibition (ZOI).The study on MRSA was surprising because MRSA is resistant to many antibiotics. From the above finding ,it can be concluded that the selected medical plants have great potential as antimicrobial agent, and could be employed in antimicrobial herbal formulation further for fungal and bacterial infections of the skin, nails and hair caused by dermatophytes, Candida albicans and Malassezia furfur. MIC of extracts showed prominent response was done.
