A staph infection, or to use its full name Staphylococcus, is caused by bacteria and depending on the type of infection is commonly treated with antibiotics. Doxycycline Hyclate is an antibiotic used for treating certain bacterial infections, so yes there is a possibility that Doxycycline Hyclate could be used to treat a staph infection.

However it is highly advisable to visit your doctor for a full diagnosis and the correct course of treatment. Self medicating is not recommended for any condition, especially one as serious as a staph infection. There are numerous types of staph infections from skin conditions such as boils to MRSA; one of the more serious strains which is resistant to antibiotics. No infection of this type can be treated until it has been professionally identified.

Staph infections can often be caused by a cut which then becomes infected with bacteria. Staph infections of the skin are the more common and treatable and can come in the form of impetigo and boils. Food poisoning can also be a cause as can surgically implanted objects which carry bacteria into your blood.

The most common uses of Doxycycline Hyclate are to treat acne, rosacea, Chlamydia and prostatitis among others. It is also used to treat anthrax and malaria. For more information on Doxycycline Hyclate visit
If you think you may have a staph infection then visit your doctor immediately. If you have any unusual skin sores or have a fever with no other flu symptoms then this can often be indicative of an infection. Never take drugs that haven’t been prescribed to you or have been prescribed for a different condition. Always consult your doctor and get the problem properly diagnosed and treated.
