    Staph infection...

    Being a lesbian woman, how do I not pass a staph infection to another woman? I am being montitored for the infection and am getting antibiotics, for it. I was told it's not curable, and keeps coming back. So I'm on antibiotics. Can I pass thru the mouth? Or thru fluids from the Virginia? I don't have any open sores. Etc...

    RE: Staph infection...

    I'm not sure about the mouth, but it can be transmitted through Virginia for sure. Many people carry staph bacteria and never develop staph infections. However, if you develop a staph infection, there's a good chance that it's from bacteria you've been carrying around for some time. Staph bacteria can spread easily through cuts, abrasions, and skin-to-skin contact. Staph infections may also spread in the locker room through shared razors, towels, uniforms or equipment.
