Skin Infections Diagnosis


Cellulitis
If you have symptoms of cellulitis, try to see your health care provider the same day. If a fever or pain accompanies the rash, the rash is changing rapidly, or it appears to involve the face, seek immediate emergency care. It's important to identify and treat cellulitis early because the condition can cause a serious infection by spreading rapidly throughout your body.

Carbunculosis
In some cases, bacteria from a carbuncle can enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of your body. The spreading infection, commonly known as septicemia or blood poisoning can rapidly become life-threatening. It is important to see your health care provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Cutaneous candidiasis
Cutaneous candidiasis is usually easy to treat, but some complications are possible such as recurrence (repeat) candida skin infections and an infection on nails may cause nails to become oddly shaped and may cause another infection around the nail. Contact your health care provider for an accurate diagnosis.
