- Staff infection? Please… any one who knows anything about it?
- Q: So, my sister just told me that her husband has a staff infection, a pretty bad one, and that it might be mersa? He gave it to theirdaughterr also. He started showing sighs of it about 2 weeks ago (started out like a spider bite, Iguesss) Well, they were at my house a couple days before. She swears that he had no sign of it when they were here. The problem is, I have a 4 month old baby and I’m extremely cautious (as I think any new mommy would be). Now Im really perinoid that the germs are somewhere in my house (on the couch, its leather), or carpet or door handles. And we might pick it up. My qeuestion is… How long is the gestation period? Would we/my son show signs yet if we came in contact with it 2 weeks ago? What would the signs be, are there more signs then just the pussy spider bite looking thing? And, say he brushed up against something and got the infection on it (like the back of my couch or something) Would the germs still be there enough that we could still catch it from where he touched? Sorry… Please, please help! I freaked out learning that you can die from it.
- A: Hi! First of all, it’s perfectly normal to be a little paranoid with a new baby! 🙂 My husband contracted MRSA last year through an open wound. That’s the biggee right there. We all have some amount of Staph and Strep on our skin at all times, but the bacteria needs an entry point such as a puncture wound. We have to be vigilant about covering open wounds, sores, bites, etc. About the gestation period – can’t tell you. But I can tell you that I changed my husband’s wound coverings for days before he started antibiotics, and I never got infected. But I had no open wounds and was very, very careful about thorough hand washing. I would say that if they were in your house 2 weeks ago and no one has shown any signs of infection (redness, puffiness, fever, “bites,” etc), I think you’re OK. But just be very, very, VERY careful about any open wounds, scratches, or even diaper rash. And ALWAYS be very thorough with washing your hands, wrists, fingernails, etc. I don’t want to scare you any more than you already are, but we ALL have to be very aware of this and try not to spread anything. Be careful but try not to be too paranoid. Being a mommy is hard enough!Good luck and God bless!
