Some patients will unfortunately have Staph on their bodies, nasal passage ways, underneath their finger nails and in the razor blades. I would see your doctor consider bactroban nasal. Consider a NON concentrated bleach bath. Always use new razor blades. See your doctor for more answers. Good luck
