Hygiene: To prevent MRSA skin infections as well as any other infection, one should practice good hygiene with washing hands and cleaning surfaces etc that may have been exposed to MRSA or any infection with a good disinfectant. I often recommend the use of alcohol hand gels as this often sterilizes hands as well as cleanse skin surfaces.
