Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Staph epidermis is a normal commensal in our body. Commensals are friendly bacterias that do not harm us and help us fight the unwanted bacterias. The colony count of the Staph Epidermis is 19,000 org/ml, values above 100,000 org/ ml is considered as pathogenic. So do not worry about it

1. Drink atleast 8 glasses of water per day
2. Void urine after sex
3. Finish the course of antibiotics if you are already on it

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
