Staphylococcus Aurous is the bacteria usually found in nasal passage and on the skin of people. They are harmless when they are on the skin but once they enter inside the body through cuts and wounds they cause infection and grow rapidly.
When the nose becomes infected by the bacteria painful cuts and wounds are seen on the nose. These are painful and cause itchiness. Apart from the cut and wound one can also see boil. The infected area becomes red and swells up. These swellings are filled with white and yellow fluid called pus.
Once the boil grows and the head is formed the pus drains out and the boil vanishes after some days. There are two types of boils:
Furuncles: These are milder forms of boil. They appear and disappear naturally or at times by giving home treatment.
Carbuncles: These are complicated boils and they need some time to heal. They can take medical help also.
Impetigo is another infection caused by staph. In this infection scabs made up of dry serum are seen in and around the nose. Unclear or stuffed nose provides perfect condition for the growth of bacteria. A person should take proper precautions in case of cuts and wounds. If not handled properly the bacteria can enter the skin and cause infection.
Nose picking and scratching the skin should be avoided during infection. Cleanliness is the best way of treating the infection.
