How can you tell when a staph infection has completely cleared? All white spot gone. Some scarring exists. Can't tell. Few small red spots remain.

You can tell by. completing the prescription course given to you by your doctor and lesions should be gone. You may have some residual redness and lasers can clear those, but all bumps, scabs, crusting should be gone.Hope that helps.
