Staphylococcal infection is shortly known as staph infection. Many people catch this bacterial infection on their nose, foot, genitals and anus. The infection is possible when you have small cut or wound in the foot or other body parts. Among other parts, foot has risk to develop this infection from the floor.
Not all the people affected by staph infection have the same signs and symptoms. The symptom varies with the extent and intensity, how fast it grows on the body and how far is resistant to antibiotics. Cellulitis belongs to the category of staph infection. Swelling, red scaly patches on the skin and redness are some of the signs of staph infection. Some people will have skin sore or ulcer like growth associated with fever and chills.
Staph infection can be cured by taking antibiotics. Even a normal course of penicillin is enough to control the growth of this bacterial infection, but many people are taking over dose of antibiotics and become resistant to certain antibiotics. In rare cases, surgery is done for preventing the deep infection on the muscles.
A little self care is enough to prevent staph infection. Whenever you have some cuts or wounds on the skin, wash it with soapy water and keep them clean and dry. Do not share towels and soaps with others since you can get infected easily by sharing them.
