  • I personally have not. The doctor usally prescribes some oral antibiotics if it is not to serious. According where the staph is located, some doctors suggested to be careful having the child around a lot of people until it clears up.

  • i had staph. i got it in the hospitall after(or while) delivering my baby. it was on my butt so i didnt notice until my other parts healed. it was really bad by the time i found it. i had to go to a surgeon to have it drained. they treated it like it was nothing... a sterile wound they said. i did further reseach that said it is far worse than my surgeon said. it is contagios. it can live on metal sufaces 24 hours. once it is in your system you never fully get rid of it. my husband got a sore right after i did and he has recently had another.
