What Are Skin Infections?

Skin infections can occur anywhere on the body as a result of viruses, bacteria, or fungi that penetrate the skin.

Symptoms of skin infections include:

How Are Skin Infections Treated?

Skin infections can vary widely in type and symptoms, and they can affect people differently. It's important to visit a trained medical specialist to receive a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment for skin conditions. Within a private treatment room, one of our skilled doctors will examine your skin and learn about your symptoms. A skin culture is often performed by collecting a sample in order to determine the type of infection. Depending on your specific condition, we may prescribe oral antibiotics or antifungal creams, as well as topical corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and itching. With proper treatment, skin infections often begin to improve within about three days while full healing could take 1 – 2 weeks.
