Clinical and bacteriological study was carried out in 100 cases of Pyodermas to find out the causative organism and their antibiotic sensitivity patterns. Maximum cases were of impetigo (31%) followed by furunculosis (24%), folliculitis (22%), pyogenic intertrigo (6%), sycosis and carbuncle (6% each), ecthyma (2%) and cellulitis (1%). Majority of the cases belonged to age group of 0-10 years. A total of 99 isolates from 100 cases with pyodermic lesions were isolated. Single infecting organism was isolated from 85.85% and more than one type of organisms from 7.07% of cases. No organism was isolated from 9.09% of cases. Coagulase positive Staphylococcus (80.8%) was the predominant species isolated followed by Beta-haemolytic streptococcus (13.13%) and Esch. coli (3.03%). Staphylococcus aureus showed highest sensitivity to Gentamicin, Erythromycin and Cephalexin and high resistence to Tetracycline, Penicillin and Polymixin. Streptococcus Beta-haemolyticus was highly sensitive to Gentamicin, Cloxacillin and Tetracycline and less sensitive to Penicillin and Ampicillin. Most of the strains were found to be resistant to one or more antibiotics.
