Procedure of Treating skin infections at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre

The skin is the biggest organ in the human body, and it is also the most vulnerable to infection when we suffer from cuts or scrapes. When bacteria, parasites, or fungus enter and spread through the skin, this is known as an infection. If this occurs, you may have swelling, discomfort, or changes in the appearance of your skin.

There are four different kinds of infections that may affect the skin.
  • Infections of the skin caused by bacteria include boils, cellulitis, abscesses, folliculitis, and impetigo.
  • Infections of the skin caused by viruses include chicken pox, measles, shingles, warts and cold sores.
  • Infections of the skin caused by fungus include athlete's foot, ringworm, dandruff, Jock itch, and yeast infections.
  • Infections of the skin caused by parasites such as lice, bedbugs, scabies, and hookworms.
A thorough medical examination is the best way to determine what is causing an infection of the skin. In most cases, our medical professionals are able to detect infections of the skin just by looking upon it. If it is necessary, a culture may be performed to identify the specific kind of illness that you are suffering from.

The treatment differs depending on the disease and the location that is being affected, but getting immediate care may result in faster recovery. There are a few different forms of viral skin infections that may be healed on an individual basis in a matter of days or weeks. In most cases, antibiotics that are either applied topically to the affected area or taken orally are sufficient to eradicate bacterial infections. It is possible that intravenous medications will be required for the treatment of the infection if the strain of bacteria is resistant to being cured.

We at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre are dedicated to providing our patients with the most effective treatment for skin infections by using the most cutting-edge technology and medicine that is completely free of any adverse effects. We are able to diagnose, treat, and help you avoid a broad variety of common skin disorders. In spite of the fact that primary care physicians are qualified to treat a variety of skin conditions, treating skin infections often calls for the specialisation of dermatologists. We have experienced physicians who can recognise skin infections and can help you determine the nature and extent of your condition.

Seek the assistance of a dermatologist for an effective treatment and diagnosis.

Precautions for skin infections

A skin infection may be treated effectively at home to lessen its symptoms.
The following are examples of what may be included in home care:
It is recommended that you minimise irritation and inflammation by applying an ice pack on your skin on many occasions throughout the day.
Antihistamines may be purchased without a prescription; these can help relieve itching.
Applying ointments and lotions to the affected area might help relieve pain and irritation.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should you see a dermatologist for a skin infection?

Make an appointment with us for a consultation

  • If you have a rash or a skin condition that affects at least 10% of your skin.
  • If you also have additional symptoms, such as a fever, muscular discomfort, joint pain, or trouble sleeping, get medical attention immediately.
  • When ulcers refuse to heal after 2 weeks have passed.
What tests are used to identify skin infections?
Our medical professionals will do a medical examination and inquire about your symptoms in order to get a diagnosis of a skin infection. You may have to go through certain laboratory testing, like a skin culture. A sample taken from your skin will be analysed in order to determine the specific kind of illness that you have. We could collect a sample of your skin by swabbing it, scraping it, or cutting off a very little portion of your skin (for biopsy). Other types of examinations, such as blood tests, are used on occasion.
Who is more likely to get a skin infection?

You are more likely to get a skin disease if any of the following apply to you:

  • Have a lack of adequate circulation
  • Have diabetes
  • If you are older
  • Have a condition that affects the immune system, such as HIV or AIDS
  • Have a compromised immune system as a result of having had chemotherapy or taken other medications that inhibit immunological function
  • If you are malnourished
  • If you are confined to a single position for an extended period of time, such as when illness forces a person to remain immobile for an extended period of time or when paralysis prevents them from moving about
  • Have an excessive amount of skinfolds, which is something that might occur if you are obese.
How long does it take for skin infections to heal?
The duration of therapy may vary greatly depending on the kind and degree of the illness being treated. After a treatment course of roughly two to three days with an antibiotic, the signs of skin infections show indications of improvement. In the event that your infection doesn't really improve or becomes worse (particularly in the event that you get a temperature or the illness spreads), you should contact your doctor as soon as possible. Be careful to complete the whole course of antibiotics that have been given to you, whether they are oral or topical, unless you have been instructed differently.
How serious is an infection of the skin?
Infections of the skin and abscesses will never heal on their own and need immediate medical intervention at all times. Come see us if you think you could be suffering from an infection or an abscess.
What are some ways to avoid getting skin infections?
Although we are here to assist you in getting treatment for your skin problems, we would prefer it if you stayed away. It is important to keep in mind the following four primary actions in order to avoid skin infections:
  • Hand sanitation: Frequent hand washing.
  • Skin Protection: Use a protective shield from the harmful effects of the environment.
  • Environmental Cleaning – Maintain a clean working environment and living space
  • Take Precautions – Stay away from individuals who have infection.
