Yes Icky stuff which seems to me you should really go to a doctor about instead of spending your time looking at this website. Don't pick at it, you'll make it worse!

This is all about the wonderful world of Bacterial Infections. If you don't want to see the horrors of what lies under that spot, look away now....
* Bacteria fall into two categories:

Gram Positive (Purple)
Gram Negative (Pink)
This is determined by a staining and counter-staining process using Cystal Violet and Saffranin, which always makes my fingers purple and is a real bugger to wash off! This is used to outline the Taxonomy of the bacteria, and to identify what range of infections they can give you!


Staphylococcus aureus

This is a quite common *Gram-Positive nastie which lives around the mouth nose and genitals. It's fine until the skin is broken, then all hell lets loose causing boils, oozing sores, toxic shock syndrome and impetigo! Icky! Get some Savlon if you get Staphlycoccus and don't itch it!

Candida albicans

Ofph! Cottage Cheese alert! Candida is a fungal infection causing white lesions which are usually a result of increased antibiotics, low immunity or increased sexual activity. It lives in warm moist air free areas like inside the mouth and sexual organs, men get it too y'know so wipe that smile off yer face! Natural yoghurt works wonders on it, provided its not strawberry flavour!

Eschericha coli

Everyone's heard of this one...E coli is a Gram-Negative (means it can't form spores) enterobacteria, that lives in yer guts synthesizing vitamins and proteins, it's also an oportunistic pathogen which means it's ok while inside your body acting as part of your internal microflora (healthy bug- eating protection for your belly), but outside, it's a naughty nastie which causes diarrhoea and vomitting which is easily transferrable, it even causes necrotizing bacteria to thrive! Eek.

Psuedomonas aeruginosa

Hmph another opportunistic pathogen (as are most it seems) particularly problematic to people having transplants as this is the one that causes those 'orrible infections as it can infect ALL tissue. Guaranteed to kill 50% of patients undergoing transplants, scary. Its favourite causes are Urinary Tract infections and Dermatitis, nice little bugger this one.

(Oh and the reason her hand is over her mouth, is becasue she could smell her own decay....ICK!)

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

That stranger in the pub might be to blame for increasing fleshy, cauliflower-like warts developing on and inside your genitals, anus and throat. Caused by bacterial infection which have been left to their own devices and bad hygiene. If you want to get rid of them, you'll need to have them frozen off at the same time you arrange to have their legs broken I should think.


The Ebola virus is transmitted by direct contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected persons. The infection of human cases with Ebola virus has been documented through handling of infected chimpanzees and gorillas. Characterized by the sudden onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat, followed by vomiting, diarrhoea, impaired kidney and liver function, and internal and external bleeding. No vaccine is available for Ebola haemorrhagic fever. You get it, you die.

Asian Bird Flu (Avian Influenza)

Avian influenza is an infectious disease of birds caused by type A strains of the influenza virus known as H5N2. Known as highly pathogenic avian influenza, this form is characterized by sudden onset, severe illness, and rapid death, with a mortality rate approaching 100%. It has mutated rapidly into highly pathogenic virus. During an epidemic in the US, the H5N2 virus initially caused low mortality, within six months became highly pathogenic. It is one of the fastest pathogenic killers, within three days Hong Kong's entire poultry population, estimated at around 1.5 million birds showed signs of H5N2, killing over 40%.
Stay away from the boids!


your common cold sore gone horribly wrong in the space of four days. This is what happens when you pick! Ick!


How not to smile and say "Cheese"


Eating its way out of a small spot which later turned into something resembling a well.
