Erysipelas is a bacterial infection in the upper layer of the skin. Erysipelas is usually caused by the Group A Streptococcus bacterium, the same bacterium that causes strep throat. The infection results in large, raised red patches on the skin. This is sometimes accompanied by other symptoms, including blisters, fevers, and chills. Erysipelas most frequently occurs on the face and legs.
HOW IS ERYSIPELAS DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis is purely clinical and no investigations are required. Blood culture and swabs and culture of any blister fluid may also be helpful, usually in those patients where the diagnosis of cellulitis is in doubt. X-rays, CT scan or MRI are useful if there is any concern about a foreign body.
HOW IS ERYSIPELAS TREATED?
Antibiotics are used to get rid of the infection. If the infection is severe, antibiotics may need to be given through an IV (intravenous line). People who have repeated episodes of erysipelas may need long-term antibiotics. Surgery is only required in rare cases of erysipelas that have progressed rapidly and caused healthy tissue to die. A surgical operation may be needed to cut away the dead tissue.
