Staph infections are also known as staphyloccal infections. A staph infection is considered a common problem that can occur on almost any spot on the body. A staph infection can occur if some specific bacteria sit on the body and then enter in the body through a wound or an open cut. Different skin health articles (on different websites) have an ample amount of information about staph and there you can also find skin infections pictures with thorough discussion.
Staphyloccal or staph infections can also occur to touch something that has become toxic because of the bacteria or if you use or share clothes, towels, or bed linens of a person who already suffering from a staph infection, there chances that you may also develop the infection.
When staph infections occur on some common areas of body (the hair follicles), they make a white whitehead. In some people, they erupt into a boil. It can happen any where hair follicles exist including areas like the bum, inner thighs, face and armpits. If it is a boil, it may prove more uncomfortable than a whitehead.
