Cellulitis (sel-u-LIE-tis) is a common, potentially serious bacterial skin infection. The affected skin appears swollen and red and is typically painful and
warm to the touch. Cellulitis usually affects the skin on the lower legs, but it can occur in the face, arms and other areas. It occurs when a crack or break in your skin allows
bacteria to enter. Left untreated, the infection can spread to your lymph nodes and bloodstream and rapidly become life-threatening. It isn't usually spread from person to person.
Symptoms: Possible signs and symptoms of cellulitis, which usually occur on one side of the body, include: Red area of skin that tends to expand, Swelling, Tenderness, Pain,
Warmth, Fever, Red spots, Blisters, Skin dimpling
Cellulitis is a bacterial infection involving the inner layers of the skin. It specifically affects the dermis and subcutaneous fat.
Signs and symptoms include an area of redness which increases in size over a few days. The borders of the area of redness are generally not sharp and the skin may be swollen.
While the redness often turns white when pressure is applied, this is not always the case. The area of infection is usually painful. Lymphatic vessels may occasionally be involved,
and the person may have a fever and feel tired.
Cellulitis is caused by a type of bacteria entering the skin, usually by way of a cut, abrasion, or break in the skin. This break does not need to be visible.
Group A Streptococcus and Staphylococcus are the most common of these bacteria, which are part of the normal flora of the skin, but normally cause no actual
infection while on the skin's outer surface.
About 80% of cases of Ludwig's Angina, or cellulitis of the submandibular space, are caused by dental infections. Mixed infections, due to both aerobes and anaerobes,
are commonly associated with this type of cellulitis. Typically, this includes alpha-hemolytic streptococci, staphylococci, and bacteroides groups.
Report of Test
Subject: One sample submitted and identified as: 95% Carbon (Dry Weight)
Sample Description: Amber to Purple Tinted Material 128 parts aqueous to 1 part Cleaner
Project: Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC)
Introduction: Test Overview: Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC). The MIC is a microbiological assay which measures the antimicrobial effect of a substance at one aqueous concentration and time of exposure.
Procedure: Testing was conducted in accordance with testing company procedure MIC/MICGEN.025
All Test were performed by Testing Company Microbiologist
Inocolum: 24 hour culture, estimated 1 x 10*5 cells inoculated per treatment
Incubation: 35C, 24-48 hours, bacteria and 2-7 days fungi
Assay Replication Triplicate
Results: 95% Carbon (Dry Weight)
Summary and Conclusions: Test results clearly demonstrate antibacterial/antifungal and "NO GROWTH" activity on the organisms tested.
