About

Staph infections are caused by staphylococcus bacteria, a kind of microorganism ordinarily found on the skin or in the nose of even healthy people. More often than not, these bacteria cause no issues or result in generally minor skin diseases.

However, staph infections can transform into something serious if the bacteria goes further into your body, entering your circulatory system, joints, bones, lungs or heart.[1]

- Can be self-diagnosed

- Can be treated and controlled
- A harmless condition, can be controlled with proper treatment

Treatment, as a rule, includes antibiotics and drainage of the contaminated area. Be that as it may, some staph diseases may not react to common antibiotics. An increasing number of generally healthy individuals are diagnosed with hazardous staph infections.
