Staph infections in toddlers
I was wondering, besides the antibiotics that her docotr has prescribed, what else can I do for my Granddaughter who has a Staph infection on her little buttocks?
Aside from keeping the area clean and dry and watching for any signs of a worsening infection and contacting her primary care provider with any additional questions or concerns it appears that you are doing the correct things.
