    A huge problem in the Virginia area has been MRSA or "Staph Infection". Our team before and after practice everyday, washes our mats, I hope we arnt presented with another problem like this.

    Why virgina area. Don`t the women wrestle with clothes on?
    Why don`t the girls wear shorts instead of G-strings?

    If women are getting that. Then are men that wrestle also getting genital herpes? I thought the main thing spreading is herpes gladiatorum, which affects face neck and shoulders.

    Studies showed that kids should not keep any towels in their gym lockers and should use only their towels and wash them every night. It was found that wet towels hanging close to each other in the open lockers that many gyms had were spreading many of the common skin diseases. (Not necessarily herpes)

    The staph infections are really getting dangerous. Many are no longer easily treated with antibiotics. I almost died twice while in the hospital from simple skin infections believe me they are no joke! Only experimental antibiotics saved me. They were talking about amputation of my leg.

    The point is this is something to take very serious. Clean everything and everyone! Skin checks should be routine in practice rooms not just at meets.

    Is not about being tough.

    Skin infections can kill, permanently scar, lead to amputations and other health issues. Many skin diseases and becoming antibiotic resistant.

    Don't screw around. Keep everyone and everything clean as possible!

    Good call ccbig

    If you want to see what it can do to someone, check out my thread about Kevin Randleman on the mma forum. It's pretty scary suff.

    I know of at least one college wrestler here at Ohio State that had his career ended because of staph infection.

    I see now, you wrote Virginia not Vagina.
