Q How can I get rid of the black scars left behind because of a staph infection? What can get rid of a staph infection from home without antibiotics? It seems like we are getting them now every few months.

Many staph infections, like drug-resistant staph infections, cannot be treated with antibiotics. There are other ways to treat them, such as having them drained. It is also most important to practice good hygiene, meaning not sharing items such as clothing, towels, etc. with anyone and washing your hands regularly to avoid spreading infection. The scarring has to be addressed and treated by a health care professional such as a dermatologist. Please contact me with any further questions. Best skin care wishes.
