Were you looking for information on a Staph Infection? Staff infection is a common misspelling of staph infection.
Most of the time, Staphylococcus bacteria in the body do not cause any problems, but they can sometimes turn into an infection; this is known as a "staph" infection. When this occurs, the infection often affects the skin, resulting in a red bump (or cluster of red bumps) that looks like a pimple or a boil. Staph bacteria can be transmitted from person to person through direct contact with the skin, as well as through touching objects (such as towels) or surfaces that have come into contact with an individual's infection.
