StaphAseptic Review & Giveaway CLOSED


“To help prevent skin infections caused by bacteria such as MRSA and other germs, it’s essential to treat your minor cuts and scrapes with StaphAseptic® First Aid Antiseptic / Pain Relieving Gel. The greaseless, non-staining gel provides soothing wound care without stinging or irritation, and contains Lidocaine for effective pain relief.”

Do you ever worry about getting a staph infection or MRSA? I have never experienced either of the two in my personal life, but during my clinical training in the hospital, I came face to face with them both.

Most people don’t know anything about either of these bacteria’s, and may not know how dangerous they are. Here is a little information on both:

Staph Infection: Staphylococcus aureus, referred to commonly as "staph" are bacteria commonly carried on the skin or in the nose of healthy people. Approximately 30%-50% of the population is colonized (when bacteria are present, but not causing an infection) in the nose with staph bacteria. Sometimes, staph can cause skin infection. Historically, staph infections occurred among persons in hospitals and healthcare facilities but now they are rapidly spreading into the general population and are easily spread from person to person.

MRSA: Some staph bacteria have mutated and cannot be killed with commonly used antibiotics. MRSA is a type of staph that is resistant to antibiotics including methicillin and other more common antibiotics such as penicillin and amoxicillin. Millions of people are colonized with MRSA in the U.S. alone and infections are appearing at epidemic rates. MRSA infections are commonly mistaken as spider bites.

We received a sample of StaphAseptic for review.

Since I am the mother of a very active 2 year old, we have already put this stuff to use multiple times. Every time Cooper gets a cut or scrape we wash the area, place some StaphAseptic on it, then if needed, cover it with a Band-Aid. Because the StaphAseptic contains Lidocaine, it helps with the pain while it also works to prevent infection.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone. Staph Infections and MRSA are scary things, so I believe that anything that could help prevent it should be used when possible.

When visiting the StaphAseptic website, I learned that StaphAsepticit to be used to prevent infections, but should not be used on active infections. Staph bacteria, including MRSA, can cause skin infections that may look like a pimple, boil or ingrown hair and can be red, swollen, painful, or have pus and other drainage. Serious infections may cause pneumonia, bloodstream infections, or even death.
