Staph Infection Treatment Available to Residents and Visitors of Maui, Hawaii
Receiving proper staph infection treatment from a medical professional in Maui, HI, is very important when you first contract the disease. Staph infections are often located on the skin or in the nose and are caused by bacteria growth. While most infected individuals will first notice the condition when their skin becomes tender, swollen, or red, the infection can quickly cause more debilitating symptoms, including nausea, fevers, boils, impetigo, cellulitis, and toxic shock syndrome if not treated promptly and correctly.
To receive expert staph infection treatment, turn to Urgent Care West Maui. Our medical center in Maui, Hawaii, is open 365 days a year from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.*, and we can treat a variety of non-life threatening illnesses and injuries, including staph infections. To treat the condition, our experienced and compassionate doctors will first provide a comprehensive examination and assess your infection carefully to determine the best plan of action to treat both the infection and its symptoms. Common treatment includes:
- Drainage of the infected area
- Topical or oral antibiotics
If the staph infection does not respond to any of the traditional treatment methods, we can also provide intravenous fluids or antibiotics as part of the many diagnostic services we offer at our center, so our patients do not have to travel elsewhere to receive the care they need. However, in some more serious cases, you may be referred out to a hospital for an incision, drainage surgery, or tissue cleaning.
