Staphylococcus aureus, the most common cause of staph infections, is a spherical bacterium, frequently living on the skin or in the nose of a healthy person, that can cause a range of illnesses from minor skin infections (such as pimples, boils, and cellulitis) and abscesses, to life-threatening diseases such as pneumonia, meningitis, endocarditis, Toxic shock syndrome (TSS), and septicemia.

Listen to the latest Beatdown. They talk to Cole Escovedo who almost died because of staph and has trouble just walking atm. Great interview, very informative.
I hope Forrest recovers soon. At least he seemed to have caught it in time, before it did any major damage.
