Information on Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)

TSS is a rare but dangerous infection caused by toxins of bacterial origin (Staphylococcus aureus) usually found on the skin and in the nose. This infection can affect men, women and children, but the risk of contracting TSS is higher in teenagers and women under 30 years of age. Though rare, it is important to know what the symptoms are so that you can take action if necessary. It is also crucial to be able to recognise the first signs of TSS so that you can treat it from the outset.

The symptoms of toxic shock are as follows: high temperature of sudden onset (39° or higher), nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness, diarrhoea, muscle pain, throat pain, skin rash similar to sunburn.

Only some of these symptoms may appear. Left untreated, TSS can cause serious infection with fatal consequences. If you notice one of these symptoms, remove your cup immediately and consult a doctor. You should tell him/her that you have used a cup. Speak to your doctor before reusing a cup.

To reduce the risk of contracting TSS, empty the cup a maximum of every 6 hours. You can also use a Saforelle Cotton Protect sanitary towel at least once a day and during the night. If you do not use a cup, the risk of contracting TSS is reduced but cannot be ruled out.

    Really happy. I’ve wanted to try it for a while. So I’ve given it a go. It’s practical having the box to sterilise it. The first day I didn't have any problems inserting it. I used it on a day off. The 2nd day I was at work. It’s really great with the box. I really recommend this product. I’m already a Saforelle fan but I’m more than pleased with this
