We all want healthy looking skin. It makes us feel good about ourselves and gives us confidence when meeting other people. But did you know, no matter how healthy your skin looks and feels, it still plays host to many different types of micro-organisms. One common type is Staphylococcus aureus.
Most of the time, this bacteria will cause you little or no harm. But if it invades deeper into your skin, it can lead to a bacterial infection, known as staph infection. Generally, a staph infection can be treated with antibiotic creams or tablets, but some staph infections, like those caused by MRSA, can be resistant to certain antibiotics making the infection much more difficult to treat.
