Sex is a means by which MRSA spreads. Here are some reasons and some action you can take.
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.
Staph bacteria is very common
It’s worth remembering that 35% of people may have the equally dangerous but easier to treat staph aureus bacteria on their skin. We all mix with people who carry staph bacteria - so sex with an MRSA carrier is slightly more risky mainly because it is harder to treat. Multiple sex partners also exposes you to more risk.
Do you or your partner have other health issues?
If you or your partner has other major health vulnerabilities or a current wound, special care will be needed. Down to Walgreens for the Hibiclens - this can be used as a whole body bacteria cleanse. It’s not foolproof but it will help. Make sure the groin and armpits are thoroughly done.
