Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

Thank you for your patience. Sounds like your test results are essentially normal. A small amount of white blood cells with no visible bacteria from a superficial skin cyst removal is considered normal. The light growth on bacterial culture of the particular organism you listed is also considered normal since this strain typically lives on the skin itself as part of what we call normal flora. Thus, that light growth is actually considered a "contaminant" rather than an infection. Has your physician told you if they want to treat it with antibiotics? (usually they do not) Do you have any other questions I can help you with today?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
