Treating skin infection


Treating Skin Infection – A Comprehensive Guide

The skin is the largest organ in our body. As an integral component of our immune system it is the first line of defense against harmful microbes. It’s host to a closely-knit ecosystem of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Collectively this ecosystem is known as skin flora or skin microbiome. There are three types of microbial communities that exist within the skin’s flora. -

1. Commensalism –Neutral microbes, i.e. they are neither beneficial nor harmful

2. Mutulistic –Beneficial microbes, hey help keep the skin’s flora in balance

3. Pathogenic –Harmful viruses, bacteria and fungus.

A wound, a break or any vulnerability in this natural defensive barrier, due to any reason, opens the door for contracting serious infection. Pathogens are very good at finding gateways into your body. That is why serious efforts are being put into developing ways to preserve the defensive nature of our skin without causing any harm to the skin flora.

Skin Infection Treatment: Awareness Is the First Step!

The term “Skin infection”is a diverse one with many divisions and subdivisions.

Effective skin infection treatment cannot be administered until right diagnosis has been determined.

It is common to term any skin outbreak as rash. But even a simple skin rash has many variations in clinical dermatology diagnosis.

3. Seek Help Early– If you find a skin condition aggravating, consult a medical practitioner as soon as possible. A proper skin infection treatment, at right time can save you from a lot of troubles.

4. Be communicative - It requires a very thorough and detailed understanding for diagnosing and treating skin infections. Thus it is important that you communicate everything to your doctor and help him/her follow right skin infection treatment guidelines.
