In brief: Antibiotics

Depending what the staph is sensitive to various antibiotics can be used.
Surgical soap may be helpful in decreasing the bacteria to decrease chances reinfection.

Hot compresses are also helpful if the infection has turned into a boil.

In brief: First confirm its

staph. If it is then you need prescription strength Mupirocin, and likely an oral antibiotic like doxycycline or Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)
