What exactly is Golden Staph? Is it an infection? How do you catch it, if you have had it once can you get it again?Golden Staph is an antibiotic resistant infection which first appeared in some hospitals back in the 1960's where it was a result of too many antibiotics being used which resulted in exotic forms of infective bug evolving with resistance to these antibiotics.
Now 40 years later with continued overuse of antibiotics there are many different strains of similar infections and they inhabit nearly every hospital, veterinary surgery and many doctors surgeries. It is caught by contact within these types of places and it is now the #1 problem in infection control as it can mean that patients don't heal after surgery or die because of uncontrollable infection after surgical procedures.
I hope this answers your question and I advise you consider very carefully before exposing yourself to these environments and procedures and to take the sorts of precautions I advise on my website on the link;
