FPolymicrobial infections are infections caused by two or more micro organisms at the same site. The most common types of these infections include skin and soft tissue infections, pelvic /vaginal infections, chronic infections and sepsis. Skin and soft-tissue infections (SSTI) are among the most common infections, and may lead to serious local and systemic complications. One of the common causes of polymicrobial skin and soft-tissue infections is the occurrence of secondary bacterial infection that complicates skin lesions. Skin lesions that can be secondarily infected with bacteria are scabies, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, eczema, and kerion (Fungal infection of the hair follicle). More than 50% of the patients with skin and soft tissue infection have the polymicrobial type of infection.
