..you don't know if it's staph infected, but if it was, believe me you'd know something. It wouldn't be a regular hardened scab, it would be very tender, sore, very red, and probably oozing with rancid pus.

If you're asking on the OCD forum, its probably not staph infected. Try to recognize the obsessions as OCD and not seek reassurance from others to calm your fears.
