In brief: It depends
Treatment will depend on the site of the infection, the seriousness if the infection, the type of staphylococcus involved, and the age of the baby.
Treatment could range from a simple antibiotic cream, to hospitalization and intravenous antibiotics for a serious infection in a younger baby.
