LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - If you think you can't get a Staph Infection from your summer bug bites, think again.
Doctors said you can get a Staph Infection from a bug bite, and it is quite common.
Dr. Dafer Haddadin said any opening in the skin gives the bug access to our bodies, thus causing the infection.
Haddadin said symptoms include redness and swelling. He said if you think you have a Staph Infection, cleanliness is key.
"The first thing is to clean it," said Haddadin. "The second part, if you have normal, healthy skin, is just routine hand and skin hygiene. That's probably the best way to try to prevent that."
Haddadin said if you think you have a Staph Infection, it's also important to see your doctor. He said Staph Infections are often confused for other things, and left untreated.

The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
