It depends on where it is affecting.
Skin:boil, redness of the area, swelling with pus. In children it could sometimes cause what we call staph scalded skin syndrome where the skin may begin to peel.
Lungs: cough that produces thick spit, high fever, difficulty breathing. Common in people who initially had flu and this comes on top of it.
Blood: Very high fever and the person is very sick as in nor be the one wey you waka go lab because your body Dey do you one kind and they will test you and say you have staph aureus in your blood. This one you will be terribly sick.
Bone: pain, fever. May have swelling and redness around where the bone pain is.
Toxic shock syndrome: especially when you leave vaginal tampon in or sometimes from other source of infection. Patients usually are very sick.
Food poisoning: severe nausea and vomiting. May have abdominal pain and diarrhea. Usually just goes on it’s own
Breast: pain, swelling, redness
👉So how do you diagnose staph aureus❓
Gram stain and Culture. That is identifying the organism under microscope. Depending on what you present with, sample could be blood, urine, bone marrow, pus, skin biopsy etc.
So make I break am down. There’s really no blanket statement like “you have staph infection”. I will tell you what I mean. If the infection is affecting your lungs then you have pneumonia caused by staph, if it is your blood, you have sepsis caused by staph, if it is on your skin, it could be impetigo, boil, abscess or whatever other skin infection caused by staph. The idea that you just go to a lab and they find staph in your blood without any symptoms is something to be worried about.
Staph infections truly exist and in people without underlying problems, it usually causes skin infection and not all the gbogbomishe they accuse it of causing. Yes, it causes problems but make sure your health practitioner can prove the source of your staph infection before placing you on antibiotics💊.
Sometimes treatment with antibiotics 💊 will commence especially for the skin infections even without confirmation because we understand which bacteria is popular in that area but otherwise if you feel fine don’t just accept and say “dem say I get staph infection”.
