In 1880, Alexander Ogston did an experiment to see what was inside pus, to describe the clustered micrococci inside of it, he called them staphylococci from the Greek word staphyle, which means a bunch of grapes. (questionable souces pranav but yh the scientist was pretty high)
A pretty common disease seen everywhere and just vivin on your skin
Tspread by sharing stuff and contact
It creates sores and sometimes internal pains smae with sumptoms
Most common treatment is anti-biotics but due to resistance it is becoming more deadly and harder to treat
Almost impossible to die from it but if resistance is high enough then ur screwed
An estimated 20% to 30% of the human population are long-term carriers S. aureus which can be found as part of the normal skin flora, in the nostrils - so they just vibe on our skin and make us smelly
These bacteria are spread to others by having direct contact with an infected person, by using a object the infected person contaminated, or by inhaling infected droplets from the infected person’s sneezing or coughing. A skin infection are common, but the bacteria can spread through the bloodstream and infect nearby organs. - ight we just need to finish maleria i think
I know these memes are dead but they are funny so who cares
It mainly just chills on ur skin but if it breaches through it can cause some mild infection and a lung colonization (or heart,and thats when things get deadly) it depends really mainly its just skins
It also infects plats and animals
Ome extremely rare strains could kill u by infecting your primary oragns (heart , nose lung) 0 this is mainly cuz they need the nutrients and the skin gives em that but (u wash them of when u shower) but in body only nutrient is u
Staph infections are caused by bacteria called staphylococcus, when gotten there are multiple symptoms you could get.These symptoms include:
f you don't want to get the infection, follow these steps to prevent you getting it and spreading it
but yeah for extremem measures entire countries have to be shut down but for most cases just don't touch your face , be wary of people and wash your hands
Some of the antibiotics that have been used to treat staph infections are cefazolin, cefuroxime, cephalexin, nafcillin (Nallpen), oxacillin (Bactocill), dicloxacillin, vancomycin, clindamycin (Cleocin), rifampin, and telavancin (Vibativ). Combinations of antibiotics and other antibiotics can also be used.
Staph bacteria are very adaptable, and many varieties have become resistant to one or more antibiotics. For example, only about 10 percent of today's staph infections can be cured with penicillin.
The emergence of antibiotic-resistant strains of staph bacteria — often described as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains — has led to the use of IV antibiotics, such as vancomycin, with the potential for more side effects, such as vancomycin.
If that doesn’t work a cure is very unlikely due to the resistance , however a new treatmnt called phages may help
Well you gotta be really unlucky right now however thanks to people not taking care of their hygeine and peole legit oversdoing antiboitics it is not extinct and increasingly growing immunity , that is what will kill u
