Staph Infection: Staph infections have been increasing resistant to certain antibiotics, it is important to tell your doctor about your results so that they can prescribe you different antibiotics since your specific staph infection may be resistant to the antibiotic that you are currently taking. Results will vary for each antibiotic you take.
