Cause #3: Cuts and Scrapes

We’ve all known since our early days how important it is to disinfect ourselves after getting a cut or a scrape. One of the reasons for this is because while we have an open wound, our body is more susceptible to getting a bacterial infection.

This is true for the staph bacteria as well. If you don’t disinfect yourself after getting a cut or a scrape, no matter how small, it’s possible that the staph bacteria will be able to enter your skin and begin the process of producing boils.
