does anyone else...

does anyone else have a child that prone to staph infections? please no bashing. my son is prone to them and i learned that using antibacterial soap (i was using baby lavender soap) that it seems to help cut back on the amount of infections. at least my son it did. i had to word this as a question so-does anyone else have this issue?

  • theres really no way to help prevent it besides being clean. once staph is in your system it will be there forever. so once your son gets a cut or a scrap that can alsp turn into a staph infection. so i know its hard to prevent accidents but try to make sure he doesnt cut open skin alot

  • my daughter had staph before, it was only once, i did not know it can be an ongoing thing though, had to take her to the hospital for it and that was the last time it happened

  • actually it has nothing to do with being clean. my son takes bathes every night and sometimes twice a day. i even asked his dr if i shouls be bathing him more but he said its a bacteria that lives on your skin and some people are just more prone to it than others. but regardless thanks for you input. i just want to make sure that everyone is aware its not a "dirty disease".

  • damn sory for answer but i do think you said being clean cuts back on infection yourself..

    i learned that using antibacterial soap (i was using baby lavender soap) that it seems to help cut back on the amount of infections.

    but i guess since i said it i was wrong..silly me..how dare i say that

  • i wasnt trying to be rude and i may be reading too much into this but i think there were some miscommunications. your words were:
    theres really no way to help prevent it besides being clean there is alot of bashing on this website and i wanted to make sure that it was known that i bathe my child-he doesnt get this because hes dirty all the time. i apologise if you took it as me being rude bc that wasnt my intentions at all. i sincerely do thank you for your input.

  • i didnt say you were dirty. i should of rephrased it. i mean use anitbacterial soap ( which u said you were) and wash watever your son touches so it doesnt pass to anyone else. i know how it works my self i had tehm a few years ago myself

  • ok i just wanted to make sure there was no confusion w/ moms that have no experience with it and like to bash on it anyway. i wanted to get information out to moms that didnt know it. my dr never told me that antibacterial soap would help- go figure. but i didnt want to seem like i was being rude to you at all because i really wasnt trying to be rude. when i go into detail about things like that-its for the moms that bash. it was nothing against you but instead to defend myself before the bashing started. lol. thanks for understanding :D

  • My son got it on his bottom once pretty bad. The doctor said to use dial soap. That was the soap he recommended.
