Skin infections

Postby Alhabib » Tue May 08, 2012 11:13 am

Many bacteria colonize human skin; these organisms are called the normal microbiata. Based on your knowledge of human skin, why do you think that these bacteria do NOT usually cause skin infections, yet can quickly cause infection when the skin surface is broken, as in a wound?
