That's also a factor, absolutely. When you're constantly healing even small injuries like cuts and scrapes, your white blood cell count can take a good dip and that's your first defense towards bacterial and viral infections. Hopefully Chris is getting a longer term dose of antibiotics to ensure he doesn't build up a resistance to the strain of staph.
I guess the big bucks I've spent on my education thus far have paid off a bit.
