Best Answer

Staph is a common bacteria. It's everywhere. If your immune system is ok you shouldn't have any more of a risk of getting it provided that you use good hygene and keep yourself reasonably clean. Staph infection gets into small cuts and sometimes even pores of people with weakened immune system. Sometimes it's just because they haven't been eating right or maybe not getting enough sleep or who knows what. Don't get too excited about it, but make sure the dishes are clean.
