what should i do about it? would they let me out of my memberhsip contract for this?
a bunch of sweaty people using the same shit will spread shit from time to time, doubt they'd let you out of a contract.
go to the doctor staph is a huge pain in the ass so go to the doctor
i already have seen my doctor. i am on antibiotics for staph. im not asking how to treat a staph infection, but how to deal with my gym.
They won't let you out of the contract, most of the time there is a waiver in the contract.
This is the reason I tell you people to wear gloves in the gym. Just hope that you didn't get a MRSA infection.
Unless you have open wounds on your hands or something that shouldn't really be an issue. Exactly what were you doing?
Gloves are just damp things that bad shit likes to live in.
Yeah like ripping a callous off, which happens pretty often if you're moving weight. You know that already though.
Yeah thankfully I havn't done that in a while.
If you have stuff living inside of your gloves, chances are pretty high that it is YOUR shit living in there.
staph is all over the place in gyms. seriously.
i got one, not from the gym, on my forearm like a month ago
went away in a week with antibiotics
go to the doc
How can you guys tell if you have a staph infection?
I have always been worried about this and try to wear pants and gloves in the gym as much as possible. I really need to get a pair of sandles for when I walk around the locker room/sauna/shower though.
i have been to the doc. am on antibiotics for a week, and it doesnt appear to be doing anything.
dude. get a pair of thongs/shower shoes before the next time you go to the gym! srsly
ah really? that sucks
i got one cream thing, and used it...took like a week for the bumps to go away and i still used it for another 1.5 weeks after that to make sure it was gone. The doc did say there was a slight chance the cream wouldn't work on me and if so, to come back to him and he'd prescribe something else...so definitely head back there if it doesn't improve
so weird that i got em on my forearm
it's like a superzit
you'd notice it
i had two next to eachother that looked like a snakebite
I've had this thing on the bottom of my foot for a few months now. It looks like a mesquito bite, but has a black head on it that is hard and solid. I go around the showers/sauna with no shoes/sandals.... I didn't think it was anything to worry about, but now I am kinda worried.
Doesn't hurt or anything though.
i hate stinky people at teh gym who reek from that "NEVER wash their clothes" odor. and then i have to use the machine they were last on. ewww. inconsiderate motherfuckers
sounds exactly like a staph
go to the doc dude
Injured members or those at college can freeze their accounts at the gym I go to.
Tell them the situation and say at the end of your contract you'll go somewhere else if they can't freeze your account.
I guess i'll make an appointment just to be safe.
I googled some pics and it does not look like the same infections shown by google images.... but better than sorry I suppose.
none that i know of, it just itched and hurt a bit, the doc lanced it and gave antibiotics...bascially told me "yeah nothing you can do to prevent getting these, no biggie, will be gone in a week, good luck"
this country really needs a shot of test
