In brief: Reverse is true

Staph. Is a very common bacteria found in our everyday environment.
Some people even carry it in their nose and don't even know it! it doesn't become a problem until it gets into a break on the skin and causes infection. An infected wound won't heal until the body's immune system can kill and remove all bacteria which is dramatically improved with antibiotics.
