Eight days ago I woke up with an abscess on my leg in the groin area, opposite of my testicles. My wife and I promptly went to the doctor and it turned out to be a mrsa infection. The sore was drained of puss and I have been antibiotics taking them on time and will continue to take them on time until they are gone.
My question is: what should we do so that we can continue to have sex without transferring the bacteria to my wife? Obviously we should wait until the cuts are all healed and I complete the rounds of antibiotics. However, everything I have read about mrsa does not discuss how to disinfect healthy skin of staph, only to keep wounds covered. We are ok with abstaining while I am healing but we do not want this infection to compromise our marriage. What should we do?
