Most signs of Staph infection can show up anywhere on the body, but are much more rampant in the areas of clothing friction and irritation such as feet and buttocks. The reason behind this is various levels of infection are automatically anywhere in the body and could even be passed from one area or one person to the other. Signs of Staph infection also show up in sweaty areas like armpits, groin, feet, face and neck. People should become acquainted with the clinical manifestation of Staph infections so that they can report conditions to the doctors immediately.
When infection takes place, usually there is crust formation evident on the skin. That is usually one of the first to manifest. Another one of the signs of Staph infection is blister formation usually materializing above the skin patches. In addition, these blisters also have a crust-forming property. The infected part may also feel inflamed and become unusually warm. At times, there will also be a rise in body temperature. This is one of the body’s defense mechanisms to create a hostile environment to the infection-causing bacteria.
Signs of Staph infection during initial stages involve the emergence of clear fluid-filled blisters. In a day or two, these blisters could burst. All that will remain of them are small, round-shaped breaks on the skin surface. As a result, the suffer tends to feel sick and the skin will also feel some soreness.
These sores are usually filled with pus that is either orange or yellow in color. In the event that these particular signs of Staph infection aren’t given proper attention, these sores might burst resulting in bacteria being further spread to neighboring body parts. The problem is not all sores are easily recognizable to the naked eye. A number of them linger below the skin’s surface. Some might also be hidden deeply inside the sufferer’s body. The only external indication is the skin around the infection, which may become very red and painful to the touch.
Signs of Staph infection, in a few instances, may involve rashes appearing in a particular area. These rashes will then damage by very quickly scattering all over the entire body. There may also be an abrupt boil multiplication, though it only happens during severe cases.
