In brief: Strep or staph

These are the two main types of bacteria that can cause the symptoms apart from fungal infections.
Some people try triple antibiotic ointment to begin with. If that does not help an oral antibiotics may be required. Some companies also make compounds antibiotic creams by adding in penicillins or similar type medications in a cream form.
