What is this test?

Skin infections or allergies can cause blisters which are often filled with fluid. The fluid-filled in these blisters are collected and analyzed to detect the cause of allergies or infections and the type of bacteria causing the infection like aerobic or anaerobic bacteria. These are the type of bacteria which grow based on the presence or absence of oxygen. Generally, skin allergies or infections may often be caused by chemicals, some plants, bacteria like MRSA, Staphylococcus, E.Coli etc.

What are blisters?

Blisters are the small bubbles on the skin filled with the serum which may be caused by friction, burning, eczema, allergic reactions, bacterial infections, viral infections like herpes or chickenpox, frostbite, exposure to poison ivy, oak, sumac, sunburns, etc.

What are Bacteria, and Aerobic Bacteria:

Bacteria are the single-celled microorganisms that can live within the soil, in the ocean and also inside the human gut. They have a number of shapes such as spirals, rods, and spheres etc. Some bacteria can cause illness to the human body and some other plays a major role in the overall functioning of our ecosystem.

Aerobic bacteria are the bacteria which can survive in the presence of oxygen only. In the absence of oxygen, aerobic bacteria cannot survive and can die. Some of the aerobic bacteria are Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Nocardia, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis etc.

Why this test is performed?

The fluid in the skin blisters is collected and is sent to the laboratory for identifying the cause of the skin conditions or to identify the type of bacteria present in it. This test can be used to recommend effective treatment for skin infections and also check the effectiveness of the treatment.
