Strange sores on arms

Strange sores on arms

Brenda Sanderson's sons had gone to a graduation party. But two days following the party, strange sores began to appear on their arms. As the sores grew and began to ooze, their mother decided to show them to the doctor.

The doctor asked about their recent activities, and it was then that the mother mentioned about the party. The party had a bouncy house, and when Brenda mentioned this, the doctor began to have doubts about a staph infection. The doctor mentioned, like bouncy houses – staph bacteria is commonly found in school gyms on wrestling mats, "..or something that's not washed or cleansed properly."

Staph often will spread easily, Dr. Ari Cohen, Chief of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Mass General Hospital explains, "Anytime you break the skin you're at risk of some sort of infection." So basically, Brenda's sons must've had scratches on their arms, and the staph bacteria entered their system while playing in the bouncy house. Now that's scary! How easily germs can find a way to attack our bodies, right?

Wash up your wounds!

Dr. Ari Cohen also mentions, "washing up any wound after you get it, should minimize the chance of getting significant infections." Now here's a plot twist: studies now find ticlosan - "the active ingredient in many antibacterial soaps, contributes to the growth of potentially harmful bacteria." Therefore plain soap and water might be your best bet.

Precautions to be adhered to!

Next time when you have your kids, or even yourself, going to places like bouncy houses and gyms, it's best to inquire about its cleansing practices, or simply wash it down with a mild cleaner yourself!
