The microbial skin microorganisms of healthy volunteer bathers before and after bathing in Southern Greece coastal areas was monitored. For semi-quantitative analysis, a pad technique was used. Regardless of the quality of bathing water no bather was colonised by faecal coliforms, faecal streptococci, Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Aeromonas hydrophila on their skin. Fungal contamination of the skin of bathers showed a statistically significant increase (P=0.019) after bathing in polluted water. Staphylococci and aerobic bacterial levels varied before and after bathing. However the quality of water had no obvious effect on this variation.Keywords - Bathing, Skin flora.
