Skin Staff Infections
Among the most common infections of the skin staff infections are those caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. These may include a variety of specific manifestations depending upon where the bacteria colonize and how out of control they’re allowed to get. Fortunately, as long as the infection remains localized, such infections are almost always successfully treated.
When you find a swelling, redness or even pimples on your skin, you want to know what’s causing it. The most common culprit is Staphylococcus aureus, or simply staph (or staff). This very common bacterium is found ubiquitously on the surface of the skin, no matter how regularly you bathe.
These microbes manifest as skin staff infections when the skin is somehow punctured or otherwise looses integrity. These infections are dealt with by the body, eventually pushing the colonies out or being regularly disposed of, one bit processed at a time.
When things come to a head
Most people are familiar with pimples, but those who are not familiar the more serious pustule-infections should consider your selves lucky. Most are very painful. They include:
Among those skin staff infections that you will almost undoubtedly want to seek treatment for are those that penetrate deeply into your tissue. Sometimes these start out or manifest as skin infections, but if you don’t see it rising to the surface or find red streaks radiating out you MUST seek medical attention IMMEDATELY. The time you’ll spend recovering from the infection is very highly correlated with the sort of toe-hold the multiplying bacteria are able to produce before they’re stopped.
While boils and carbuncles certainly seem deep, if properly managed, they will eventually heal on their own. The hardest part is probably to do nothing. Applying a warm and moist compress is the only thing you should do – let it rise to the surface and erupt on its own. Irritating the area around it by trying to express it beforehand will further delay the healing process and may cause some of the infection to go deeper, which is very dangerous.
When they do burst, keep the area clean and dry. It will surely be painful enough that you won’t be tempted to irritate the skin around it.
If you’ve been prescribed antibiotics to treat skin staff infections, be sure and take the whole course and notify your doctor immediately if you don’t start to feel better in very short order. Many strains of staph are resistant to the usual treatment and you don’t want to be a drug-resistance statistic as the result of simple skin staff infections.
