Re: Staphylococcus and staph infections causes

Usually staph infections & staphylococcus come from the Staph Bacteria and can come  from Contaminated objects. However it is more likely to be spread by skin to skin Contact.

Re: Staphylococcus and staph infections causes

A staph infection is caused by the Staphylococcus (or staph) bacteria.  A weakened immune system can increase a person's risk of getting a staph infection.  Your skin is the most important defense against staph bacteria but if your skin gets cut or punctured or wounded and has a sudden influx of bacteria from an outside source an infection will more than likely develop. If you get a cut or a wound, keep it clean and cover it to help prevent it from becoming infected and also the spread of infection.
