What Causes Skin Infections?
Skin infections are caused by various types of germs, each type causing a distinct type of infection in the body. The main categories of skin infection include:
- Bacterial infections (like impetigo)
- Viral infections (like shingles or warts)
- Fungal infections (like athlete’s foot)
- Parasitic infections (like lice or scabies)
If you’re experiencing a skin infection, you’ll likely notice redness, itching, bumps or discomfort in the skin. It can be difficult to determine the cause of a skin infection on your own, so patients experiencing these symptoms are encouraged to visit Florida Dermatology Specialists and undergo the appropriate lab tests for diagnosis.
How are Skin Infections Treated?
Once diagnosed, the treatment for skin infections will depend on the main cause of the infection. Most skin infections are treated with topical or oral medications, which are able to fight the germs to eliminate symptoms and cure the infection. Some skin infections may even go away on their own, but patients who are struggling with persistent or severe symptoms are encouraged to seek treatment from a dermatologist.
How Much Do Skin Infection Treatments Cost?
The cost of skin infection treatments at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the strategies involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.
