MRSA & Sex is a potentially risky situation. All that skin contact is going to mean transfer.
BUT It’s worth remembering the 35% Staph aureus statistic – many people carry the easier to treat, but equally harmful staph bacteria, so we’re all likely to be around people with some dormant staph potential. The main caution about MRSA & Sex that we would suggest is when you or your partner have major health vulnerabilities or a current wound.
Down to Walgreens for the Hibiclens for the whole body bacteria cleanse. It’s not foolproof but it will help. Make sure the groin and armpits are thoroughly done as this is where the bacteria often hide and shed during physical intimacy. You should also shower after sex to remove transient bacteria.
