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.

A venous ulcer is a break in the skin. Everyone has staph on their skin. If you have an ulcer, it is very easy for the staph to get into the tissue and become an infection.

Yes you can.


Venous ulcers are due to a breakdown of the skin usually overlying the medial or lateral ankle due to venous hypertension due to , usually, venous valvular reflux in the saphenous system of veins. These are very prone to bacterial infection and staph can be a component of the infecting organisms. Often times, multiple bacterial will be cultured from these ulcers.

Yes you can but ...


they are rare. Although staph infections of venous ulcers can occur, as described by the other doctors' answers, surprisingly, they are actually quite uncommon. Antibiotics are rarely needed in the treatment of venous ulcers.

Can a person get a staph infection in the kidneys?

Yes


Staph infection can result in a kidney function (pyelonephritis). When this is the case, it is possible that the infection spread from the bloodstream to the kidney ("hematogenous spread") instead of the usual means of infection ("ascending", via bacteria entering the urethra).

this is unlikely to occur, since Staph is normal flora of the skin even if you did it would be difficult to determine whether the infection was from your own skin or outside contact

Can you get a staph infection from a blood transfusion?

Answered by:
Dr. Liawaty Ho
Hematology and Oncology

Infection and blood


yes, there is risk for bacterial infection associated with blood product transfusion- especially with platelet transfusion as it is stored in a room temperature. However your risk to have staph infection coming from your own skin or upper respiratory tract is way way way more common than from blood product transfusion- which is almost always.
