As you are having a staphylococcal infection which is commonly causing skin , throat infection.

You can consult any doctor according to the body part being infected.

If you have sore throat, pharyngitis, respiratory tract infection due to this bacteria then you can consult a ENT specialist which can prescribe you the appropriate antibiotics.

 

If your skin is involved then you can consult a dermatologist.

 

Above all the general physician can also give you valuable opinion regarding the appropriate antibiotics.
