So, what in the world causes this infection? The severe condition is the result of Staphylococcus or Streptococcus. Those are rare but very nasty bacteria that try to occupy at least one organ. Their preference is the body’s skin. They also like expanding in different head areas like nose or throat. It is not that dangerous as when they manage to penetrate the external system, releasing huge portions of toxins. These toxins are able to attack and even ruin tissues or prevent the injured organs from proper functioning. The system blocks stop working one by one, leading the person to death.

Thus, it is important to know the causes and avoid catching this really bad infection. First of all, if you’re a woman using tampons – better switch to other, safer methods of absorbing blood during the menstruation period. Keep away from the barrier contraceptives (e.g., contraceptive cap). A wound or a scar can also lead the bacteria in. Various cuts and insect bites also create a zone of risk. People who possess throat infections or cellulitis have higher chances as well.
