It’s common medical knowledge for quite some time that Staphylococcus aureus has been recognized as one of the most important disease causing bacteria in human beings. It’s the leading cause of skin and soft tissue infections like abscesses, commonly known as boils, furuncles as well as cellulitis. Although they can be extremely painful, most staph infections such as pneumonia and bone and joint infections can be treated with antibiotics. Most of the infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus affect the skin or soft tissue.
Abscesses are common to Staphylococcus aureus and appear as pockets of infection at the injury site. They are usually filled with pus and are extremely painful and swollen, They may also feel warm to the touch and are extremely sensitive. Cellulitis is also a result of Staphylococcus aureus and is an infection that affects the area beneath the skin. It is usually caused by a cut or scrape, sometimes unnoticeable, which allows a portal of entry for the bacteria. It is most commonly seen on the legs and arms although it has been known to spread to all parts of the body. The level of discomfort is intense and includes redness, swelling and severe pain. When left untreated, Cellulitis can lead to pneumonia as well as other bloodstream infections.
