Do you have skin problems? Maybe you have staphylococcal infection?
Staphylococcus aureus is a type of bacteria found on human skin, in the nose, armpits, groin, and other areas. While these microbes are not always harmful, they can cause disease under certain circumstances. S. aureus is a leading cause of skin and soft tissue infections such as abscesses, boils, boils, and cellulite (red, swollen, painful, warm skin).
- aureus germs can also cause more serious infections such as pneumonia, bloodstream infections, endocarditis (infection of the inner lining of the heart chambers and heart valves), and infections of bones and joints. Specialists of the Altimed Medical Center will help you quickly cure Staphylococcus aureus.
Diagnostics and treatment of staphylococcal infection MC Altimed
The most effective treatment for staphylococcus can be prescribed only after passing the diagnosis and confirming the diagnosis. At our clinic, you can undergo an examination using modern equipment, which allows you to get the fastest results and start eliminating symptoms and treating them as soon as possible. We carry out diagnostics non-invasively, which means that both children and adults may not be afraid of unpleasant or painful sensations.
Two diagnostic methods:
- Functional screening to find out the state of the organs, the immune system, and to understand why the body reacts in this way.
- ATM Vega Test is a deeper type of diagnostics for detecting hidden diseases.
Based on the results obtained, the specialist prescribes treatment for staphylococcal infection.
What is staphylococcal infection?
Staphylococcal infections are a group of infections caused by the Staphylococcus bacterium. You may have heard that they are called “staphylococcal infections.”
Staphylococcus bacteria can cause a wide range of infections, from relatively minor skin infections such as boils to more serious infections of the blood, lungs, and heart.
There are many types of staphylococci, but most infections are caused by a group called Staphylococcus aureus.
This group of bacteria includes methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which is resistant to certain antibiotics, which are commonly used for staphylococcal infections such as flucloxacillin.
It also includes PVL-Staphylococcus aureus, which produces a toxin called Panton-Valentine Leukocidin (PVL), which kills infection-fighting white blood cells and can cause recurrent skin infections such as boils and abscesses.
Staphylococcal infections can be divided into two groups: skin and soft tissue infections and invasive infections.
What are the signs of staphylococcus?
Skin infections caused by staphylococcus aureus manifest themselves in different ways. Conditions commonly caused by S. aureus (Staphylococcus aureus symptoms) include:
- Folliculitis: This is an infection of hair follicles, tiny pockets under the skin in which hair shafts (strands) grow. With folliculitis, tiny white-headed pimples appear at the base of the hair shafts, sometimes with small red patches around each pimple. This often happens when people shave or have irritated skin from rubbing against clothing.
- Furuncle: These swollen, red, painful growths on the skin are usually caused by an infected hair follicle. The lump fills with pus and becomes larger and more painful until it bursts and begins to drain. Boils often start out as folliculitis and then get worse. They most often appear on the face, neck, buttocks, armpits and inner thighs, where small hairs can irritate. A bundle of several boils is called a carbuncle. A person with carbuncle may feel unwell and may have a fever.
- Impetigo: This superficial skin infection is most common in young children, usually on the face, hands, or feet. It starts with a small blister or pimple and then forms a honey-colored crust.
- Barley: There is a red, warm, uncomfortable bump at the edge of the eyelid.
- MRSA: This type of staphylococcal bacteria is resistant to antibiotics used to treat staphylococcal infections. MRSA infections are more difficult to treat, but most can be cured with proper care. Most MRSA infections involve the skin.
- Scalding skin syndrome: most commonly affects newborns and children under 5 years of age. It starts with a small skin infection of staphylococcus aureus, but staphylococcus bacteria produce a toxin that affects skin throughout the body. The child has a high fever, rash, and sometimes blisters. When the blisters burst and the rash heals, the top layer of skin peels off and the surface of the skin becomes red and rough, like a burn. This serious illness affects the body in the same way as serious burns. You need to treat in the hospital. After treatment, most children recover completely.
- Wound infections: These cause symptoms of redness, pain, swelling, and warmth. The person may have a fever and general malaise. Pus or cloudy fluid may leak from the wound and form a yellow crust.
Serious forms of staphylococcal infection include:
- Endocarditis: occurs when staphylococcus aureus enters the bloodstream and attacks your heart. Doctors usually treat him with strong antibiotics. Surgery is sometimes required if the infection damages the valves in the heart.
- Sepsis: If you have a serious infection, it can enter your bloodstream. This is called sepsis. This can cause fever and dangerously low blood pressure, and is especially dangerous for the elderly.
Staphylococcus aureus causes:
- when someone touches a contaminated surface
- from person to person, especially in group living situations (for example, in dormitories). This usually happens when people with skin infections share personal items such as bedding, towels, or clothing. Therefore, if you have staphylococcus aureus on your face, treatment is extremely important and necessary for you.
- from one part of the body to another through dirty hands or nails
- a warm and humid environment can promote the development of staphylococcal infections, so excessive sweating can increase the chances of developing an infection. People with skin problems such as burns or eczema are more prone to staphylococcal skin infections.

How to avoid getting Staphylococcus aureus?
Since staphylococcus aureus surrounds us everywhere, a perfectly healthy person often becomes infected with a staphylococcal infection. The best way to avoid this is to practice good hygiene.
- Wash your hands, especially after handling soil or food.
- Make sure your food is properly cooked, clean and fresh, because if your food is exposed to staphylococcus aureus, you could get food poisoning associated with it.
- If you get a cut on your skin, treat it immediately. Wash it with soap and water, dry your skin and apply a bandage.
If you suspect that you have a staphylococcal infection, we suggest that you pay attention to this and be sure to seek help.
If staphylococcus is left untreated, sometimes this serious infection leads to more complex diseases. Therefore, it is always a good idea to see your doctor if you are concerned that you may have a staphylococcal infection.
