Our family is getting together next weekend for Christmas. The niece that is hostess was ex last week with MRSA in her throat and been on antibiotics . Her children have had Streph Throat , she said her doctors have told her that no one is in danger that everyone has mrsa . This is true but everyone is not active and have kids with Streph too. I had a HORRIBLE case of MRSA about 12 years ago and had pure holes on my arms. I have been told both ways …. Ami I more prone to catching anything from her? Her doctor said unless you were making out and kissing would she be contagious . She has a 4 month olld baby and she said he was fine.
