Need an exam: It would be difficult to take the responsibility of giving you advice without knowing the details of your illness and examining your face. If you have doubts about wether or not your infection is improving you best see a physician. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

A female asked:

After a staph infection on my face, should I use lotion?

Check the nose: Using lotion on your face should not be a problem after a staph infection. However, you may want your doctor to check and see if you are colonized by the staph bacteria in your nostrils. This can be done by simply doing a culture from the nostrils. If it is positive, then treating the bacteria there with a topical ointment may help keep you from getting another infection.
