* no stains used..just a quick look at what's hopping
at an active lesion site.
** the "cocci bacteria" are ..annoying..
they don't seem to behave like garden variety
bacteria...they don't seem to make colonies..
almost all the time..they present as individual
"berries". I have observed what appears to be "budding"
going on..a slightly larger "bacteria" with a much smaller
...hmmm...perhaps they are really yeasts?
...and these "bacteria/yeasts" have a habit of attaching
to red blood cells..
however..that is not happening much in this picture.
? they don't attach at all times?
