Staph Infection

A couple weeks ago my father was hospitalized for a week. We initially thought that it was a bite from a brown recluse spider than later found out that he had gotten bit by something and turned into a staph infection. So what is staph infection and how do you get it?

Staph is short for Staphylococcus (staf-uh-low-koh-kus). When the skin is punctured or broken, staph bacteria can enter the wound and cause infections, which can lead to other health problems. Staph can spread through the air, on containated surfaces, and from person to person. A child can carry staph bacteria from one area of the body to another on dirty hands and under dirty fingernails.

Staph infection can be simple and localized, such as with impetigo of the skin. It can, however, become widespread, by infecting the blood. It can thereby seed to various areas of the body, such as the bone, kidneys, or heart.
