Abstractdc.description.abstractBacterial colonization in patients with burns skin without infection and outpatient management has been poorly studied. Objective: To quantify and identify the type of bacteria that colonize healthy body areas homologous location of the skin in children from 1 to 15 years, seen COANIQUEM, Santiago, Chile. Per patient, we studied 204 samples from each zone. The isolated microorganisms were S. epidermidis 35, 3%; others Staphylococcus coagulase negative, 25.8%; S. aureus, 4.4%; and S. viridans group 1.4%. In the subgroup of children who had a count between 1 and 1000 cfu, there was a higher proportion of cfu in burned skin healthy skin (p = 0.0359). The association between depth of the lesion and the bacterial count obtained p = 0.034. Conclusion: In outpatient treatment, the microorganisms are expected in healthy skin, burned skin is evident in lower counts probably associated with epithelial damage.
