    He did.

    I didn't read the article what are they saying it was?

    edit: Just checked the original article and they are talking about Staph. It just probably got lost in the copy and paste to here.

    Assuming your gym washes their mats frequently, what can YOU do besides: wear rash guard, shower asap, and using soap in the showers? If I get a staph infection while doing all of the above, I'm going to go incredible hulk on the gym

    My buddy said the only way to get ringworms is from someone's ass, IE someone didn't wash their hands while shitting. True or false?

    False. It's spread my contact with the fungus. If they have it on their arm, anywhere they touch with it can get it.

    Someone showed up with it to class and gave it to everyone. I had it in 3 spots.
