Skin infections are common. Once evaluated by a dermatologist, a treatment plan can be established.
- Bacterial: Cellulitis and impetigo (Staphylococcal infections can also affect the skin.)
- Viral: Shingles, warts and herpes simplex
- Fungal: Athlete's foot and yeast infections
- Parasitic: Body lice, head lice and scabies
Treatment of skin infections depends on the cause.
