First Aid FAQ's

Can you cure a staph infection without antibiotics?

Minor staph infections of the skin, like impetigo or mild cellulitis, can often heal on their own with good hygiene maintenance. However, if the condition seems to be getting worse, topical or oral antibiotics might be needed. An uncomplicated staph abscess sometimes only requires incision and drainage and does not need antibiotics. It is best to have a healthcare provider decide if antibiotics are necessary.
