staph infection
Jul 23, 2015

Does meth effect staph infection?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Meth doesn't affect Staph infections, per se, but if you shoot meth or other drugs, you may be at increased risk of serious skin or heart infections. If you do shoot drugs, use clean kits and preferably, don't share your kit; or learn to how to clean your kits. Better yet, if available, take advantage of needle and syringe exchange programs.

Hope that helps, BY
