Brief Answer:
This is a normal result.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for writing in HealthcareMagic.

Based on this culture result from your wound I think you shouldn't worry because this is a normal result. The presence of the rare growth of mixed skin flora is considered normal and not an infection.

Please, could you tell me if the culture is taken before treatment with antibiotics or during the treatment?

I hope my answer helps you. Feel free to ask further.

Regards.
