Heavy staph growth can sometimes lead to infection to you and also in your household ( especially elderly and children).
Ok, and using bactroban wouldn't make it MRSA right?
Hence it is a good idea to decolonize with bactroban
no it will not.
in fact it will clear up all the staph.
Should I do anything different while on bactroban?
Should I not use moisturizer or make up? And throw everything away?
it is better to replace your make ups.
you can use moisturizer without problem.
how about pillow case? Should I wash everyday while on bactroban?
yes you should.
do not need to wash every day
if you see any stain or every week will be fine
i've had a runny nose for a couple weeks now, i usually have allergies, does this mean i've spread it to my throat?
usually staph does not stay in the throat for long for some reason.
they tend to colonize in the nasal mucosa.
bactroban will still take care of it.
are there any other precautions i should take?
wash your hands
I mean I share a bathroom with my brother...
Shower and toilet
do not share personal hygiene products for a week.
that is all.
not a problem for normal persons.
he was sleeping in a couch i slept in
except for elderly and kids

that is not bad although on lower side
some individuals have it for hereditary reasons.
eat healthy, exercise daily.
take vaccines as recommended
that is all.
sorry one more thing...i get yeast infections often, related to staph?
no separate issue
probiotics, yogurt may help to prevent yeast infections and also boost immunity.
phillip's colon health is a good probiotic
yeah, they recommended probiotics, i just didn't know which one to take
i don't like yogurt at all...
is that a general probiotic?
phillip's colon health has all the good strains of probiotic yo need.
