I'm not a doctor, but I've never heard of a staph allergy.


I do know staph infections can be pretty bad unless you take care of them. And if I remember correctly, we're all walking around with staph germs all over us --- it's just that something will happen to compromise our skin or our immunity, and poof - it becomes an infection.

They can be pretty serious, so you might want to ask the vet about that.

Could it be that what you read said allergies can sometimes result in a staph infection? That might make more sense --- because scratching would compromise the skin, making it easier for the staph to get in there.
