Burn Infection: Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and Staphylococcus Aureus are the Major Pathogens
Pp. 38-41 (4)
Muhammad Imran Qadir,
A burn is an injury to skin or tissues of the body caused by heat, electricity,
cold, chemicals, and radiation. Pseudomonas aeruginosa (gram-negative bacteria) and
methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (gram-positive bacteria) cause burn
infections in humans. Burn causes breathing problems and redness of the skin, damage
to blood vessels causes' skin to become black or brown with no blisters. Burn can be
diagnosed by examination, depth of a wound, or its associated infections. In developed
countries “treatment” cannot be difficult as much as in underdeveloped countries. This
is because of lack of awareness or poor income in underdeveloped countries they
depend on traditional treatment which left scars of a wound.
