Staph Infections are also known as “golden staph” from staphylococcus aureus which is literally a golden cluster seed.  In more simple terms staph infections are a group of bacteria found on the skin.  Most common causes of staph infections is scratching, as a result of itch sore from fleas, allergy or food.  The diagnosis for staph infections typically begin with a red area on the skin with a pimple like pustule in the centre.  I guess the most important to note is not to confuse staph infections with ring worm.  Our medicated shampoo can be used to treat staph infections.
