What is skin flora and is the treatment for skin flora in semen?
Hi, my husband was told by an infertility speacialist who did a semen analysis that they found white blood cells so he took Cipro for 2 weeks and restested. He still had white blood cells so she ordered a culture. They found moderate skin flora in his semen along with the white blood cells she said since its moderate no further treatment is needed. We are unsure what skin flora is and why further treatment wouldnt be needed?
Normally many organisms live on our skin. These won't cause any harm to us. They protect from outside organism. The group of organisms is different at different places like skin , mouth, intestine. Those residinon skin are called skin flora.
Presence of skin flora in semen is not harmfull. It indicates while collecting semen skin flora have come. This needs no treatment.
Hope I have been helpful .
