i spent 12 months on antibiotics because of one. If you feel that thats serious, then yes a staph infection is serious.

I had this bump growing above my weiner in the pube area, and it kept getting big. So anyways I rushed to the local doctor and got checked for STD's but it turned out to be a staph infection. Anywho I got a week of anti-biotics then it adventually went away. If you are wondering how I got one down their, it was prob from shaving my pubes with an old razor.

Also do realize their are many different levels and severnesses of them. At one of the local highschools then kind that makes you really sick was going around. Prob spread by weight room equipment because it was in all the atheletes.

For girls it's like "here's Barbie...you're fat!"

what the hell is a staph infection?

My brother had what seemed to be a mild acne sore on his chin. By the next morning it swelled up a good 50 times larger and he looked like a ****ing monster. If you think you have staph, get the **** checked out.

2% fatality rate.


is that treated or untreated? I'm pretty sure the fatality rate for an untreated staph infection is higher than that.

most of the time its nothing. easily treated and you should be on drugs for avery long time to get rid of it. But yeah, sometimes it can get really really bad.

Listen to this guy, he's australian. If there are any people out there who know how to handle women it's australians.

They can be deadly. Depends on which staph you think you have. Golden staph for example, doesn't respond to anti-biotics, which makes it pretty dangerous, but I know that most are pretty damn serious.

i find it amusing that we are discussing such a thing on ultimate-guitar

but in relation to the problem, i agree with everyone else about the severity of such an infection

That is EXACTLY what mine is like. I thought it was a spider bite at first. Our campus doctor gave me antibiotics this morning and told me to come back friday morning. If it wasn't better he said he was gonna lance it.

EDIT: He said he thought it was MSRA which is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

they can be very serious, go to hospital if you're concerned. the pit is not a good place to ask for medical advice.
