WASHINGTON, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Stronghold Technologies Inc. is pleased to announce that there is a now an Over the Counter (OTC) Solution to today's growing epidemic that kills Super Bugs, Staph infections, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Bacteria, Fungus and Odors. FDA Approved Strongcide™ topical gel/spray is a Broad Spectrum Antimicrobial that is 100% safe on skin.
Once infections such as MRSA gets in the blood stream, the infection can often times be flesh eating and may even lead to death. Strongcide™ eliminates that very fear by killing the infection, with a simple application of the gel or spray, before it gets to the blood stream. This revolutionary product will reduce the anxieties that parents often fear by exposing their children to community and team activities.
Society Is at Risk
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention one in every three people carry staph infection and more than 2 percent of the population chronically carries the type of staph bacteria known as MRSA. More importantly, researchers at the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) and University of Chicago Medicine report the rate of MRSA infections recorded at U.S. academic hospitals doubled in the past five years and the rate continues to increase.
Currently there are no known antibiotics that respond to such infections such as MRSA and Superbugs. For years' antibiotics have been prescribed for everyday colds, flu, and other viral infections which contributed to the rise of drug-resistant bacteria. Even when antibiotics are used appropriately, they contribute to the rise of drug-resistant bacteria because they don't destroy every germ they target. Bacteria live on an evolutionary fast track, so germs that survive treatment with one antibiotic soon learn to resist others
More recently, aside from the cases reported in hospitals, MRSA is occurring in the wider community — among healthy people. This form, community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA), often begins as a painful skin boil. It's spread by skin-to-skin contact. At-risk populations include groups such as athletes (wrestlers, football players, soccer, etc), childcare workers and people who live in crowded, and/or contaminated conditions.
Deno Campbell, Assistant Football Coach at DeMatha Catholic High School, one of the Nation's top ranked football programs finds this epidemic bothersome and concerning. "Over the past several years we have had at least 3-4 kids that have contracted infections such as MRSA and Impetigo in particular, and the numbers keep increasing. Those players have been quarantined for a specific time period until the infection can no longer be spread to other students. It's disruptive to say the least and the students lose valuable time from playing the game they love."
Stronghold Protecting the Communities We Serve
As a technology company utilizing over 30 years of medical product market experience, we partner with leading sports associations representing Wrestling, Football, Basketball, Hockey and Lacrosse. Our products are a standard of care at schools and universities, the military, humanitarian/disaster relief efforts, and our reach is global in scale.
"As soon as I was introduced to Strongcide™, I immediately saw how quickly the technology was able to attack the infection and the almost instant relief the athlete had once applied to the infected area. As Strongcide™ starts getting a broader reach into the communities, we should see a decrease in reported cases. I use Strongcide™ at home, with my daughter and wife, and in every aspect of my life. Why keep it to just on the field, when I can help others," says Deno Campbell.
Stronghold Technologies Inc. sees the value that this new revolutionary product can have on the community, but has recognized that educating parents and others first on the danger that is lurking is key. Often times, parents aren't even aware that their son, or daughter, is infected until it's too late. Hence, the company provides the solution that does NOT need a prescription. Now parents and the community at large will have a viable, affordable, option to combat jock itch, ringworm, impetigo, MRSA, athlete's foot, and so much more.
As physicians who have been treating such infections are finding out about this breakthrough in technology, we find they are relieved to see that there is "Finally, a FDA-Approved broad spectrum antimicrobial that provides a therapeutic dose to kill Super Bugs like MRSA and is safe to use on skin, this will change the fear that parents currently have when registering their children for extracurricular activities," says Dr. Arnold J. Willis, MD F.I.C.S. of Washington, DC.
