MetadataShow full item record
The occurrence of bacteria on superficial mycosis (tinea) has been studied. The aim of the study is to observe the presence of bacterial species as secondary infection on superficial primary mycosis. Thirty samples of patients mycosis were investigated by scrapping method at head skin (tinea capitis), body (tinea corporis), feet (tinea pedis), nail (tinea manus), and upper tight (tinea cruris). By adding potassium hydroxide (KOH) 10%, each sample was tested microscopically to examine the presence of parasitic fungi. The positive samples were diluted to 10-2 in sterile distilled water. The samples were cultured in solidified nutrient agar (NA) media for 37oC, 24 h. The number of bacteria colonies were calculated, the colonies were determined by Gram stainning. Most patients were infected by tinea tinea corporis, tinea pedis, tinea cruris, tinea manus, and tinea capitis, respectively. Five species bacteria were found, the highest number of bacteria was Staphylococcus aureus, which was found in all tinea. The second number was Streptococcus faecalis, Enterobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli, and Proteus vulgaris, respectively.
