My 3yr old has had staph on her bottom, then

My 3yr old has had staph on her bottom, then as that healed she ended up with impetigo on her leg. Now her fingers are peeling as if they had blistered but no liquid. Just sheets of skin coming off her fingers on both hands. She was on amoxicillin for the staph then was switched to clindamycin for the impetigo and some cream to go in her nose.

My 5 yr old daughter had a staph infection on her back a few months ago. Noticed breath, nose smelled more before diagnosis. Treated with antibiotics but still smell coming from her nose, breath. Is the infection still in her nose and causing this? Haven t noticed any problems with her nose or discharge.

Yes, I have a newborn baby -- 3 weeks old. He has been diagnosed with staph infection in the eyes. He has had this since birth. We have started antibiotic drops in the eys and have been using the drops religiously for 4 days. The eyes seemed to get better with 24 hours and now they are worse and he is running a very low grade fever. I have called the doctor and waiting on return call. Could this be very serious or can it be treated?

MY 2 yr old grandchild has a couple boils on her bottom. She seems to get these when a tooth is ready to come through. I took her to the doctors and she said she has a staph infection . She did not test it. She gave her medicine for the relief ( oral and topical). Before her said what it is shouldn t she do some sort of test or does visual diagnose it also? thank you
