Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. A staph infection is caused by a Staphylococcus (or "staph") bacteria. About 25% 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 little cut, which gets infected with bacteria. One type of staph infection that involves skin is called cellulitis and affects the skin's deeper layers. It is treatable with antibiotics.

Here's a link that can help
