The question I have is do you have a wound where the Staph. aureus was found? If so then you would need antibiotic treatment. Although S. aureus can be normal skin bacteria it  can also cause wound infections and so forth and some strains are very resistant to antibiotics (MRSA). Have you seen your doctor yet?  If you have they should let you know what the treatment plan will be.

I'm glad you are doing better. Staph can really get bad if you don't watch it.

If you were treated for the Staph aureus it may be gone from the wound. But it is also present on the skin normally and so when you scratched it you probably broke the skin and created the wound and infection. But, Staph aureus can cause boils, furuncles, impetigo, and it is possible to get it into your blood stream usually from a wound. Were you treated for it? If the wound is gone you are probably ok. Just don't scratch the area. If the wound gets worse and/or if you have a fever then you should go to the doctor. Staph in general is fairly congagious.

Hello russel

You had no std risk from protected oral sex.  See your doctor for the Staph.  It can be treated with antibiotics.  No need to be worked up.

Cheers

No.
This is not a STD related issue, please follow up with your Dr.

if the wound is healed, this is no longer an issue for you. as was already said quite nicely, staph is normal on the skin and not unusual to be found in a small wound in the genital area. As long as the wound healed, no longer an issue.
