Infections caused by staph, MRSA, don’t only occur in hospitals. The bacteria thrive and multiply in warm damp places like locker rooms. It’s also knows that one-third of people carry the germs on their skin or noses and can spread the bacteria to others when they enter the bloodstream. Here are some tips from the Centers for Disease control:

• Wash up: Staph can be washed off so make sure your kid’s scrub their hands often with soap and warm water and also carries a sanitizer to school and showers after group activities.

• Keep it personal: Don’t let kids share things like towels, sheets or razors. Wash clothes and towels constantly to kill bacteria.

• Act Quickly: Disinfect cuts immediately. Pour two drops of iodine into warm water. Soak or wipe the wound with this solution for 15 minutes. Bandage right away to keep bacteria out.
