The Spread of Staph Infection

Staph infections can spread on contaminated surfaces, from person to person and can also spread airborne or through the air. So, generally speaking, a child can carry staph bacteria from one area of his body to another dirty hands and under dirty fingernails. It can be passed from person to person on that way. The most important way to prevent staph infections is by hand washing.

Keeping your body clean with a daily bath or shower can also prevent staph skin infections. It is important to keep injured areas of the skin such as cuts or scrapes, always clean and covered.



Since MRSA can create havoc, when they enter an open wound or cut, so we should be careful. Hand washing is the best measure to prevent MRSA.
