Warning - this post contains graphic scenes….MRSA

Okay, I was just about to go for a run when I started to think what happened to me a couple of years ago. I had written a blog post but never followed up on it, and really, if this helps just one person then its worth taking 10 minutes out of my run!

Wind back 2 years, 1 month ago.  I was jogging through the woods when I felt something bite me on the backside (through the leggings I was wearing), I brushed it off, yelped a bit, then carried on jogging.

Later that night I noticed a small dark spot on my left cheek, like many people I like a good squeeze and started to try to extract it - nothing happened.

What followed was 10 days of pure and utter hell. This dot turned into a red inflammation mark and really hurt to sit on…
