Hi,

Dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them. but let us not rule out Impetigo! or a similar skin infection. Except for staph, the skin infections need a Penicillin like drug and cure rapidly. Staph is often resistant to a lot of antibiotics and nearly always to Penicillin. Culturing the bacteria would show what it is sensitive to.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sameen Bin Naeem, General & Family Physician
