Abstract

Background: Skin diseases in developing world have stimulated a lot of interest over the years because they are potentially preventable and controllable where high prevalence figures (21%-87%) have been reported and usually are not well managed. The burden of superficial bacterial infection was also high in Ethiopia, with different prevalence rate at different parts of the country. However, there is no recent information on the prevalence and associated factors of superficial bacterial infection in our study area.
