The bacteria pseudomonas aeruginosa is what causes pseudomonas aeruginosa infection. It is frequently present in the environment, such as in soil and water. It can be transferred from infected materials, hands, and tools to individuals in hospital environments. In certain people, it can result in life-threatening illnesses. Even some healthy individuals have strains of it developing on their skin in moist areas of their bodies, such as the vaginal region or armpits.
It’s possible you won’t become sick from it if you’re in better health. Others merely get a minor skin rash or an infection of the ears or eyes. But pseudomonas can result in a serious infection if you’re already sick or have a compromised immune system. It can be fatal in persons with cancer, cystic fibrosis, or burns. That is one of the most common reasons why patients get infections while hospitalized.
