Possibly


States of immune activation, such as infections, can lead to hives. Typically, we see viral infections in children lead to short-lived hives. However, there is evidence that people with hives have a higher incidence of colonization with Staph (bacteria living on the skin but not causing infection). It's not clear how or why this occurs, but there does seem to be a link.

The most common cellulitis pathogens (bacteria) are beta-hemolytic streptococci (groups A, B, C, G, and F) and Staphylococcus aureus, including methicillin-resistant strains (MRSA). There are gram-negative aerobic bacteria that are identified in a minority of cases. Fungal infections can also cause cellulits.

Staph Infections


Staph, or Staphylococcus, is a family of bacteria that is very virulent, contagious, and even possibly infectious. What makes staph so dangerous is that it is very resistant to antibiotics. Though staph is not generally considered an air-borne disease, there is some debate that MRSA, thought it usually is spread through contact with open sores, can remain viable on dry counters.

Interesting Fact

MRSA is a form of staph bacteria that is resistant to treatment with penicillin related antibiotics.

Staph aureus


Not sure what is referred to as "light Staph infection", but perhaps just skin lesions (boils). This organism has the potential to produce severe devastating life-threatening infection and should never be taken lightly.

Staph Infections


Yes, Staphylococcus infections can be deadly. There are certain strains that can be very aggressive and cause significant disease in the skin, tissues, and heart valves. Just because Staph is cultured from a wound does not necessarily mean that you will die (the chances in this scenario is very small). The strains and circumstances of the 'deadly' Staph is very unique.

Staph & Skin


Most staphylococcal infections are opportunistic infections meaning they take the opportunity to cause a problem if they can. Most of these infections occur in the skin and are due to the fact that something in the skin, an opportunity, allowed the normally present bacteria to have a party...at your expense. Infections such as pimples, boils, and rashes are common and can recur is some people.
