Thanks for posting your query.
The presence of mixed skin flora in an eye discharge culture is a normal variation and is not suggestive of any pathology. It is not indicative of any abnormal infection and can be taken care of with usual eye massage which is usually recommended by the pediatrician.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
