Today, staphylococci and streptococci would be the most likely organisms to be encountered in normal individuals. Occasionally, enteric or anaerobic organisms are the cause of bacterial superinfection of vaccinations. 

The use of occlusive dressings, especially those tightly bound to the skin, may result in increased maceration of the skin. Occlusive dressings may also lead to more frequent occurrence of infection, the possibility of anaerobic infection, and more serious disease.
