Hi,

Staph infections are contagious so if you have never had one before, or if the area is very red and inflamed, or your have a fever or are feeling ill, it really is best to see  the doctor.

But, if you have been to the doctor and have instructions on how to handle a minor infection, like a stye on your eyelid, then you can probably treat it at home.
