These days many go to gym for strength training to get toned muscles and to keep weight in control.
This is also the very place where some people get infection from germs.
Any busy gym has lot of people working out hot and sweaty, making it a perfect place for bacteria to grow and spread.
MRSA or Staphylococcus infection is a bacterial infection which has become quite common among the people who go to gym.
This normally lives on our skin. It often looks like red, painful boils on the skin.
This infection spreads from gym equipment, swimming pool, locker room and yoga mats.
Be aware of this and make it a good practice to shower immediately with antibacterial wash after working out at the gym.
