Get Diagnosis and Assistance of Skin Infections with Gwinnett Dermatology

Infections are serious business, and when skin infections occur, it is essential that patients work with a dermatologist to treat the problem as soon as possible. Skin infections can range from mild to severe, and treatment needs to be completed to keep the infection from spreading or worsening.

What is a skin infection?

An infection of the skin is an area where the skin has been cut or wounded that has introduced germs inside. These germs can cause infections that are often visible and painful. There are many types of skin infections that may be caused by a variety of germs including:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Fungi
  • Parasites

There are many different types of skin infections that may be diagnosed by the team at Gwinnett Dermatology, including:

  • Staph infections
  • Impetigo
  • Cellulitis
  • Shingles
  • Herpes
  • Warts
  • Yeast infections
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Head and body lice
  • Scabies

Because of the various types of skin infections, it is essential that patients visit a dermatologist who has experience in diagnosing and treating these varieties. Additionally, patients who need to pay close attention to the development of infections are those who may have a weakened immune system, diabetes, poor circulation, or are obese. These patients are more at risk of developing a skin infection and may require the assistance of a dermatological professional to diagnose and treat.

What are the symptoms of a skin infection?

The symptoms of skin infection will vary depending on the type of infection. In most cases, they may result in symptoms such as swelling, rashes, pain, redness, puss, and itching. When these issues develop, patients should book an evaluation with their dermatologist to get a proper diagnosis. Treatment will vary depending on the infection diagnosed, but results are achieved faster if the skin infection is diagnosed in the earlier stages.
