Are These Abscesses?
Discussion Staphylococcus aureus is a gram-positive, catalase-positive coccal bacterium that is found on the skin and respiratory tract. It is the most common cause of skin and soft tissue abscesses. Staphylococcus can also cause enteritis, pneumonia, and toxic shock syndrome.

Drug toxicity and genetic problems are also more common in bullae whereas vesicles are more often caused by infectious diseases. Potentially life threatening conditions such as toxic epidermal necrolysis syndrome, Stevens Johnson syndrome or...

Antibiotic treatments 'fail' 15% of the time
ConclusionOverall, this is a highly informative study of GP antibiotic prescribing for common infections in the UK. The overall antibiotic treatment failure rate was 15% over the course of the study period; these were mainly cases where there was a need to prescribe a different antibiotic within 30 days. There was a slight increase in failure rate, from 13.9% in 1991 to 15.4% in 2012. Within the infection classes, particular antibiotics had notable changes in failure rates, while others remained fairly stable. Reassuringly, amoxicillin and other commonly prescribed antibiotics currently still have fairly low failure rates....

Fatty acids in marine algae could 'treat skin problems'
Conclusion This laboratory study investigated the effects of six long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) found in high levels in marine organisms when used against the bacteria that cause acne (P. acnes) and various other skin infections (S. aureus). As the researchers say, there is a need for alternative topical treatments for these skin conditions, as the treatments used currently tend to be either not very effective, or cause undesirable side effects such as skin irritation or dryness. LC-PUFAs have previously been demonstrated to have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. This research demonstrate...
