Staphylococcus aureus

"The 1st step to STAPH INFECTION!!!"


Ever heard of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria?

Yea, us either. To put it in simple terms, it is a type of bacteria that forms in "grape-like" clusters that are actually located on practically everyone's skin! But not to worry, its harmless on the outside.

What's this about it causing staph infection???

We know we said that Staphylococcus aureus isn't all that harmful...but that's when its on the "outside" of the skin. Through even the smallest cut, you can become infected with this bacteria, causing you to develop Staph Infection! Not only can you receive staph infection through small cuts, but this bacterium can spread through contaminated surfaces and from person to person!

Sooo, care to know what it looks like??? Well...

it causes a variety of skin infections such as boils, impetigo (a painful rash), Cellulitis (an infection located in the deep layers of the skin), staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, Bacteremia (blood posinig), toxic shock syndrome, blood infections, and soo much more symptoms that you would NOT want to know about!

Not to worry, YOU CAN BE SAVED!!!

So, we're pretty sure that pratically know human being wishes to have all sorts of blemishes, boils and all sorts of things affecting their body and making them look,,,ugh!!! So, wanna know how to prevent this terrible infection from happening to you???

It's simple! Wash your hands!!!

Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Many simple and localized staphy infections can be treated through the old-fashioned way of WASHING YOUR HANDS! You can even prevent through washing your hands regulary and keeping your hygeine level up to the max! Also through the help of antibiotics and wound drainage (if you so happen to develop the disease), you can help treat the infection!
