Its the name of a family of bacteria that has caused my poor little family a fair share of discomfort. Liz and the girls have been dealing with folliculitis, which was caused by this bacteria. We thought it might be chickenpox at first, but were releived to find out it was just an infection. Liz has a severe case of it, and is taking an antibiotic for it. Hopefully in a week or so it will be a distant memory. Amazing how the smallest little germs can cause such large problems in people.
