Yes: Some people carry staph in their nasal passages. This is usually easily treated if present. If you are having recurrent staph skin infections, ask your doctor about treating your nose too. Staph can also cause sinus infections, but this is usually only true in people with chronic sinus disease, not your average sinus infection.
