Staph Infections

Staphylococcal infections, more commonly referred to as ‘staph,’ affect millions of American citizens ever year. This infection, caused by bacteria typically found on skin or in the nose, often results in only minor skin rashes or infections. However, in some cases, these infections can be serious and even deadly. Although most cases are not terribly severe, if the bacterium goes into your bloodstream or turns into an MRSA infection, it can target vital organs and threaten your life.

Staph Infection Symptoms

Staphylococcus is hardy bacterium that can thrive in improperly sterilized environments. Unfortunately, you are at an increased risk of developing a staph infection when you have a weakened immune system. Thus, if you visit an improperly maintained hospital or medical facility during this time, you can be at risk for severe staph infections.

Some common symptoms of a staph infection include:

  • Rash
  • Boils developing on skin
  • Soreness in infected area
  • Other skin infections

A patient could also contract MRSA, a strain of staph that is resistant to antibiotics. This can make the infection much more difficult to treat.
