For those of you considering piercing your body parts…it would be wise to heed the words of a young man who is now hospitalized with a MRSA infection. A Missouri teen pierced his lip with an un-sterilized needle that he found in a medicine cabinet.
A few days later he found sores on his body and was achy all over. He has been diagnosed with an MRSA infection that is resistant to antibiotics. The doctors have said that the infection has spread thoughout his whole body. He wants to get the message out to others not to do what he did because of the consequences.
Fitting in with your peers by piercing your body parts without proper medical guidance can cause more than one problem. Unsterilized utensils can cause hepatitis, aids, or antibiotic resistent infections that can jepardize your life and your health. Be informed and make smart decisions…if you still desire to be pierced talk to your doctor first.
