Bacterial infections of the skin are commonly streptococcal or staphylococcal in origin. This is true in transplant recipients as well as the general population. Transplant recipients may develop many atypical infections due to their immunosuppression. Thus all possible infections should be evaluated by a physician; with cultures taken to evaluate the type of infection and the appropriate treatment.
