Can I get MRSA from skin contact?

0 comments

MRSA Skin infections often spread via skin contact. It can be via a hand, in the small intimacies of life as well as via sexual contact. Regular hand washing, and showering if you are living with an MRSA carrier will help keep the infection at bay.

You should bear in mind that 35-50% of people carry the staph aureus (SA) part of MRSA anyway. It can be very destructive as well. It will be hard to avoid the reality that this infection and several others are often close at hand. Good personal hygiene and general good health will mean that most people do not suffer any major infection because of their brush with these bacteria.

MRSA is not a death sentence. Most people who die with it are very ill anyway with other conditions, hence their weakened defenses. For the rest of us proper treatment will usually banish it
