Sex is a means by which MRSA spreads. Here are some reasons and some action you can take.
1 Skin contact is going to mean transfer of MRSA bacteria via the skin during sex. It is often found in the nose, armpit and groin areas.
2 It’s worth remembering that 35% of people have the equally dangerous but easier to treat staph aureus bacteria on their skin however. We’re all likely to be around people with some dormant staph potential - so sex with an MRSA carrier is slightly more risky mainly because it is harder to treat.
3 The major caution is that if you or your partner has major health vulnerabilities or current wound special care will be needed. 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.
