  • Dermatologist warns against kissing bearded men
  • Explains that they are full of bacteria that can infect the skin

A dermatologist has revealed the importance of “thinking twice” before kissing men with facial hair – especially if you don’t know their grooming routine.

Muneeb Shah, known as the Derm Doctor, warned that beards “contain a ton of bacteria” that can be transferred during intimacy.

“When you rub against them, they create tiny little cuts in the skin that can lead to infections like impetigo,” he said.

He then pleaded with the men to “clean their beards” to help stop the problem at the source.

His warning was prompted by video of a young woman’s painful rash.

The young blonde cradled her head in her hands and captioned the video: “Kiss a guy with facial hair thinking it was a good idea at the time.”

She then showed pictures of her red, scratched chin becoming increasingly infected over the course of a few days – to the point that it was covered in angry marks.

The doctor’s supporters were shocked by the video.

“I have a husband with a beard but he cleans it all the time – I didn’t know that could happen,” said one woman.

“Who doesn’t wash their beard? asked another.

“I didn’t know I could be less attracted to facial hair than I used to be, but here I am,” said another.

Some admitted they were on the wrong side of a dirty beard.

“I had an allergic reaction after kissing a man with a beard once – turns out he had been playing with his cat before our date,” one woman said.

‘Oh, disgusting. Now I know the real reason behind my chest husband. My husband!’ said another woman.

“I got this after a first date. It blistered and peeled for weeks,” another added.

The woman’s video has been viewed over nine million times.

What is impetigo?

Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection caused by Streptococcus and Staphylococcus bacteria.

It is commonly referred to as “school sores” because the majority of cases involve school-aged children. However, it can also affect infants, adults, and adolescents.

Impetigo comes in two forms, blistering and scabby. In bullous impetigo, the blisters appear on previously normal skin and rapidly grow in size and number. The blisters burst quickly and leave slightly moist or icy areas with a brown crust around the edge. The spots expand even after opening and can be several centimeters wide. They sometimes emerge in the center to produce ring-like patterns. They are usually not painful, but can be itchy.

Crusted impetigo has a thick, yellow, soft crust. Beneath this crust is a moist red area. Crusted impetigo patches grow slowly and are always smaller than fully developed patches of blistering impetigo. They are usually not painful, but can be itchy.

Impetigo can occur in addition to other skin conditions, especially itchy ones. When the skin is scraped, the infection can enter through the damaged skin. Some of these conditions are atopic dermatitis (eczema), scabies, insect bites, and head lice.

In cases where a larger area of ​​skin is affected, patients may also have fever, swollen lymph nodes, or generally feel unwell.

Depending on the severity of the infection, your doctor may recommend the use of antibiotic ointment or oral antibiotics in severe cases. Antibiotic ointment should be continued until complete healing of wounds. If oral antibiotics are given, it is important to complete the entire treatment (usually 5 days) and not stop when the impetigo starts to clear up.

Wounds should be cleaned every 8-12 hours, dried thoroughly and covered with a waterproof dressing. Bathing the blisters with salt water will help dry them out (use a saline solution or dissolve about half a teaspoon of salt in a cup of water).
