This is basically a bacterial infection in the top layer of the skin which may be caused by the Group A Streptococcus bacterium, which also causes the strep throat ailment. The symptoms include the appearance of large red patches on the skin which seem raised as well as blisters and fever along with chills and swollen glands.
HOW IS ERYSIPELAS DIAGNOSED?
Dermatologists perform a complete examination of the affected area. They look for well-demarcated rashes that are inflamed. Blood culture may be done, but it does not give conclusive results. Differential diagnosis needs to be done for differentiating Erysipelas from other skin inflammations.
HOW IS ERYSIPELAS TREATED?
Usually erysipelas is treatable with over the counter ointments and medications. However, in some acute cases where the infection spreads, medication may be needed.
DID YOU KNOW?
Prevention and hygiene are the best ways to curb the infection and disease from spreading. Especially, avoid scratching and picking on wounds.
