Staph Infections

Around 15 to 40 % of healthy people are staph bacteria carriers, which means that the bacteria can live in controllable numbers in a human host without causing any disease

Having weakened immune system because of autoimmune disease or prolonged use of medications may increase your chances of getting a staph infection. This is because the immune system is unable to fight off the bacteria. Staph bacteria are very resilient and are known for their resistance to antibiotics

Other risk factors include

Iron Deficiency– Is when you don’t have enough iron in the blood. This deficiency may cause brittle & dry skin, making you more  susceptible to cuts and wounds, which staph bacteria can use as an entryway to your bloodstream.

Surgery & Invasive Hospital Equipment-

In hospital, you are more susceptible to being infected with a stronger variant of staph bacteria called MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). MRSA may enter your system while you’re recovering from a  surgery due to the large breaks on your skin or be transmitted by  invasive devices inserted into your system, like urinary catheters, feeding tubes etc.

Chronic Alcohol Abuse – may cause malabsorption, causing nutritional deficiencies. Your skin needs  vitamins A,  B1, B2, B3 and C, & zinc to maintain healthy skin. Without these you may have a higher risk of developing staph infections.
