Abstract: The skin is colonized with a wide range of microbes. Some offer vital protection from colonization and infection with pathogenic strains while others have the capacity to cause or exacerbate disease. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the role and management of microbes found on skin affected by three disorders; balanoposthitis, impetigo and atopic dermatitis (AD). Paper I investigates the frequency and distribution of bacteria, Candida and Malassezia species in balanoposthitis, a commo... more
