Toxic Shock Syndrome - Prevention

Recommendations for preventing toxic shock syndrome usually involve instructions about the use of tampons. Experts recommend that women select products with the lowest possible absorbency. They also suggest that tampons be worn only during the day and that they be changed every four to six hours. Above all, women should wash their hands before inserting a tampon. Anyone who has had TSS even once should not use tampons again.
