as far as a skin staph infection it will look like the goat has chicken pox, little pimples full of yellow puss and it does require a strong antibotic to get rid of it, pennicillian will not work, I just have woke up and for the life of me cant remember the anitbotic that does.

When one of my goats got it a year ago, I used chlorhexaderm on her udder.

I thought she had gotten into fire ants at first, but the pimples spread and got ulcerated.

Next, I started vaccinating everyone with Lysigin. Stopped the problem.

Ditto, it works wonders. You can get lysigin at jefferslivestock.com
edit to add: I had an outbreak last year when we had a hurricane hit, and it was just wet/raining for a month too, so don't forget to check the bedding and make sure they have some nice dry spot to lay in.
