Hi all, just a quick question, I have a 6 month old bub who apparently has golden staph, no idea how it came about, just wondering if any one has gone brought this. Quiet worrying.

I have had in my Eczema on my feet before. It was treated with antibiotics. Please keep a close on it and go straight back if it is not improving with in a day or two or if he gets worse

Has your child been prescribed antibiotics? If you (or anyone really) touch it wash your hands. I would get a hygiene wash for clothes, towels, blankets etc that may come in contact with the staph area. If a full course of antibiotics doesn't clear it go back to your dr.

I would go back to the doctor. My granddaughter has eczema and it is awful. Hope all will workout for you.

My son had Staph (wasn't called golden though) but was a bad rash/blisters up his arm. He was prescribed antibiotics and also an antibiotic cream. He stayed off daycare as it's contagious. And it went after a week or so. Didn't bother him at all, he wasn't unwell, but it looked terrible!

I had severe golden staph as a child and I was seeing a dermatologist for it. No, she won't be stuck with it for life, mine has been gone for all of my adult life. But I do recommend seeing your doctor again.

My DS3 had a bad case when he wad around 5 months old. It took us almost 2 months to get rid of it, it was over half of his face and for awhile they thought it was the antibiotic resistant kind. Thankfully he hasnt had any reoccurrences of it since it cleared completely.

Thank you once again for responding. She looks fine today. The dr told us to put sigmacort on her ezcema and keep here the staph was clean. She's a happy bub overall and didn't seem to bother her.
