Why, Yes. In fact I have been wearing a mask. My boss insists.

So I went to the doctor today. I had a rash in the mustache area on my face that was sometimes bright red enough to actually show through the mustache. I thought it was just dermatitis since I am prone to that but my usual treatments (hydrocortisone cream) weren’t helping and I figured they might have something stronger to deal with it.

Turns out that it was a staph infection. According to my doctor “we’re seeing a lot of that from all the mask wearing–creating a warm, moist environment for bacteria to grow.”

I predicted this kind of thing a year and a half ago. What I did not expect was to be an example case. In any case, I’ve got a course of antibiotics to deal with the infection and we’ll proceed from there.

Two lessons:

  1. Masks suck. Wearing masks did not stop me from getting COVID last December, and wearing masks led to a staph infection this December.
  2. Even if you think you know what that odd rash is, it might still be a good idea to get it checked by a doctor. If I hadn’t I would never have known and the infection might well have spread.

One thought on “Why, Yes. In fact I have been wearing a mask. My boss insists.”

  1. Fauci authored a couple of NIH papers on the subject of masks, before the Wuflu outbreak. First was in ’09, I think. Talked about how they looked at all the data that had been collected on the 1918-20 Spanish Flu. They determined that most of the deaths were actually due to secondary bacterial infections. The second paper, maybe 2016, concluded that the mandated masks were the probable cause of those secondary infections.

    When the Wuflu hit here, he first stated that the masks wouldn’t do any good. Not long after, he changed his perspective, and began pushing masks for everyone at all times. As in the 1918 flu, the same conditions are present in the mask environment. They get worn too long, and get re-used, as most can’t be cleaned unless they are cloth. Only an N-95 is rated to stop virus particles, the others are the equivalent of expecting a chain link fence to stop mosquitos. Some people are not able to wear them due to health concerns of various sorts. They are not healthy, and the whole thing is a sick joke.
