Dochter is referring to MRSA, I think. From what I understand, it's basically a staph infection immune to most antibiotics, even the uber-powerful Vancomycin in some cases. Men's Health had a feature on it in a college football context because a college star died from it, and his best friend got extremely sick from it, but survived.

Be smart and aware, not paranoid.
Did anyone else know about the staph risk?* I didn't, I was fully aware of the fungal risks though.
*Which thoroughly sucks, and is aesthetically disgusting.

MRSA can be killed by antibiotics, but it needs to be correctly diagnosed or people just keep taking the wrong stuff and eventually die.
That being said, the chances of it happening are DEEPLY slim.
*edit* Yeah, I knew about the staph risk, but my mom's a nurse and my dad's OCD, so I'm pretty up on "things that can kill you horribly".Monkey Ninjas! Attack!

It is pretty common among prisoners and guards I know say they've all healed up quickly. I'm guessing I probably got it while rolling with a guard, as opposed to just regular staph.

Yes a severe staph infection can kill you. But you are far more likely to be killed on the way to class in a car accident then you are to die of an infection from the mats. My point was, stay clean, keep an eye on your skin but don't spend any time worrying over what might happen.Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?

>If you see something slap some lamasil on it.
AFAIK Lamisil doesn't kill bacteria. But there's little risk of mistaking weeping blisters for ringworm, once you know that Impetigo (that's what skin staph infections are called) exists.

I found out the hard way.There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

Yes, put an anti fungal on it to begin with because that's most likely what it is. Lamisil will not make a staph infection worse, nor will it harm healthy skin. That was the advice given by a dermatologist, so I think I will trust an MD who specializes in these things. If the symptoms are obviously non fungal then you need to get it checked.
Edit : And accoring to WebMD minor impetigo can be cleared up with thorough washing over a 48 hour period. Again nothing to be really concerned about.

The problem is, I know a lot of people who never wash their gi's. It's fucking repugnant.Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
