Dear customer,

The staphylococcus bacteria may cause minor infection on skin to the organs like heart and in some cases septicaemia.

Some of the strains of it may be resistant to normal antibiotics and in that cases higher antibiotics and iv antibiotics like vancomycin may be given.

Let me know if you have any doubt.
