Skin Microflora

Post by annsee » Sun Sep 21, 2008 10:09 am

What are the major constituents of skin microflora?
(besides Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus and Micrococcus luteus)
I did further research and found another two micro-organisms: S. hominis, S. haemolyticus
Are they considered major constituents?

Corynebacteria and Mycobacteria are another two I can think of.
