Bacterial Skin Infections Diagnosis
To diagnose bacterial infections of the skin, dermatologists typically begin with a physical examination of the affected area. During the exam, they will look for signs of inflammation, such as redness, swelling, and warmth, as well as any visible signs of pus or discharge. They may also ask questions about the patient’s medical history and any symptoms they are experiencing. In some cases, a skin biopsy may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis. Once the type of bacterial infection is identified, a dermatologist can develop an effective treatment plan tailored to the patient’s specific needs. It’s important to seek medical attention promptly for any skin infections to prevent further complications.
Are You Suffering from Folliculitis?
Folliculitis, a common condition that causes hair follicle inflammation, is often caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus (Staph), and typically appears in areas other than the face, chest, and upper back. If you’re experiencing breakouts in these areas, it’s likely that you have folliculitis. Though the condition usually resolves itself within a few weeks, you may try applying warm compresses or medicated shampoo to relieve itching and reduce the number of bacteria on your skin. If the condition persists, it’s important to visit the experienced dermatologists at Swinyer-Woseth Dermatology for an accurate diagnosis and effective folliculitis scalp treatment with topical or oral antibiotics. Our professionals will also recommend techniques to prevent future outbreaks.
Are You Suffering from Impetigo?
Staphylococcus (Staph) can cause Impetigo, which is a skin infection that is highly contagious and commonly seen in children attending daycare facilities and schools. It usually starts with small blisters around the nose and mouth and progresses to a honey-colored crust with redness around it. To ensure proper treatment and to avoid further spread, it’s important to consult a dermatologist for Impetigo treatment. Topical and/or oral antibiotics are commonly used to treat this condition. Home care is also important, including cleaning the affected areas, washing hands after touching them, and avoiding scratching. If a child is infected, they can return to school a day after starting the treatment.
