Study shows most of the isolated organisms are sensitive to amikacin followed by Ciprofloxacin, Gentamycin and Vancomycin.
12 The antibiotics that were used against gram-positive bacteria were (20 ug of amoxicillin + 10 ug of clavulanate), ceftazidime (30ug), cephalothin (30ug), clindamycin (2ug), erythromycin (15ug), gentamycin (10ug), oxacillin (1ug), penicillin (10ug) and vancomycin (30ug).
2% of Sodium propionate (fungicidal agent) and 40 ppm of Gentamycin on the plate for picking up only rare fungal colonies.
The antibiotic sensitivity of isolates was determined against nine antibiotics (norfloxacin 10 ug, streptomycin 10 ug, gentamycin 10 ug, erythromycin 10 ug, chloramphenicol 30 ug, amoxicillin 10 ug, penicillin 10 ug, novobiocin 30 ug, tetracycline 30 ug) by standard method of Kirby and Bauer on Muller Hinton agar (Bauer et al.

The antibiotics used included tetracycline (30 [micro]g), oxacillin (1 fig), cloxacillin (5 [micro]g), cephalexin (30 [micro]g), vancomycin (30 [micro]g), erythromycin (15 [micro]g), gentamycin (10 [micro]g), and neomycin (30 [micro]g).
Gentamycin (GEN) was chosen as a model drug since it contains three amino groups which also can enter into Schiff's reaction with aldehyde groups of oxidized alginate.
Staphylococcus aureus is the commonest organism isolated while gentamycin the most sensitive antibiotic to pathogenic organisms isolated from pre-auricular sinus abscess.
