The stages of a Staph infection will vary, depending upon what area of the body the bacteria infects. However, staph infections on the skin often start as small red bumps which look like spots, boils or insect bites, later developing into painful red or purple-coloured abscesses that usually need careful draining by professionals and treatment with a suitable anti-biotic to avoid further spread of the infection.

Pictures of the various types of staph infections can be seen at: www.mrsa-staph-infection.com/articles/mersa-infection-pictur

However, becuase Staphylococcus aureus is a bacterium that occurs naturally on the skin and in the noses of many people without causing any symptoms, it doe snot always lead to an infection.Only if it is passed on to someone with low resistance or who is infected with another illness, will it go on to cause a staph infection.

According to one website dedicated to MRSA and Staph Infection information (www.mrsa-staph-infection.com/articles/symptoms-of-staph.shtm), typical symptoms of Staph infection in the early stages include developing boils containing pus or a head with clear-looking fluid, a feeling of warmth around the infected area, a fever and redness.

Occasionally staph infections can enter the body where they can lead to blood poisoning as well as dangerous infections in the heart and lungs, as well as bone and joint inflammation. Symptoms of this stage of infection can include fever, rashes, muscle pain, tiredness, headaches and more seriously, chest pain and shortness of breath.

In all cases, it is advisable to seek professional help because staph infections can often be mistaken for less serious phenomena such as a skin breakout or an insect bite but can quickly lead to life-threatening conditions if left untreated.
