This is a type of infection caused by a Staphylococcus (or "staph") bacteria. It is very common, especially in people with weak immune systems. Most people have some living on the skin all the time. About 25 per cent of people normally carry staph in the nose, mouth, genitals, and anal area. The foot is also very prone to pick up bacteria from the floor.

The infection often begins with a small cut, which gets infected with the bacteria. They can range from a simple boil to flesh-eating infections. It all depends on how deep and how fast the infection spreads, and how treatable it is with antibiotics. By themseles, the infection can be relatively harmless. But when they get into the human body, through open cuts or breaks in the skin, they can cause food poisoning, Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), pneumonia and bone infections, to name but a few.
