ok so heres the issue. I have a boil on my leg and I went to the dr for it. He said it was staph put me on anitbodics for 7 days and told me it was only contagious if someone touched the puss or touched something that had puss on it. I am a clean freak so I have had the boil for a few days and it has been covered at all times. When I clean it the stuff I use goes straight into the washing machine and I lysol the whole area. So, I call my sis in law, (we are pretty close) and tell her what I have. She messages me today saying that we cant be around each other because staph is airborne and she is pregnant and doesnt want to get it. I tell her the dr says its not airborne and all that crap. I mean I will stay away and all but it just hurt my feelings because she said that. If it were that contagious I wouldnt come around or be around my daughter for that matter. Am I wrong for being upset?

My doctor told me the same thing when I was pregnant. Don't take offense to it she is just doing what is best for her and her baby.

don't let it get to you... the boil should go away in a few days anyway.

Some info I found for you:


How Staph Infections Spread

Staph bacteria can spread through the air, on contaminated surfaces, and from person to person. Kids can carry staph bacteria from one area of their body to another — or pass it to other people — via dirty hands or fingernails. So good hand washing is vital to preventing staph infections.

She's just being cautious. A lot of people get fairly paranoid while pregnant and you really can't blame them.

She is considering her baby's health/safety, please do not have hurt feelings.
