Skin Infections

Skin infections can result from bacterial, fungal, parasitic and viral causes that enter your body through a cut or wound on your skin.

What is it?

Skin infections vary in severity based on their type and origin. Typically, these infections arise when germs breach the skin barrier through cuts, wounds, or through moisture, friction, or compromised blood circulation. The encouraging news is that most skin infections are treatable. Individuals with weakened immune systems face a heightened risk of skin infections, stemming from underlying health issues, medication side effects, age factors, or obesity-related skin folds. Skin infections present in various ways, spanning bacterial (impetigo, boils), viral (shingles, warts), fungal (athlete's foot, ringworm), and parasitic (lice, bedbugs) varieties. Symptoms vary depending on the infection type and may include rashes, swelling, itching, and discomfort. If you are experiencing an unexplained and persistant rash, schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified dermatologists located in Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton and Strongsville, Ohio.

How is it treated?

For a thorough diagnosis and treatment of a skin infection, visit one of our skilled dermatologists at Dermatology Partners. Following a comprehensive examination and assessment of your symptoms, our team may conduct a skin culture to pinpoint the specific infection type. Should the infection persist, worsen, or spread, it's crucial to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists to evaluate its severity.

While many skin infections resolve independently, severe cases may require prescription antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals, or antiparasitic medications. Trust our team to provide personalized care tailored to your specific needs.
