Our expert says:
Staphylococcus is a bacteria that normally lives on our skin. It causes problems if it "overgrows", and then infects all the small scratches, pimples etc causing abcesses/boils. He can try washing with an antibacterial soap especially in the warm moist and dark areas (between toes, under arms, groin) It also tends to grow inside the nose and using Bactroban nasal cream daily to reduce the bacterial growth inside the nose may help. He should treat any cuts/pimples with Bactroban ointment asap and close it up with a bandaid.
The bacteria may also breed on things like Loofah's, razors, facecloths and towels.
