Skin Infections and Allergy

The skin is the largest organ of the body which plays an important role to protect your body from infection. Sometimes the skin itself becomes infected which is caused by a wide variety of bacteria, virus, fungus, germs, and symptoms can vary from mild to serious. Mild skin infections may be treatable with over-the-counter medications and home remedies; whereas other infections may need medical attention.  Bacterial skin infection starts with small and red bumps that slowly increase in size. Few bacterial infections are mild and easily treated with tropical antibiotics, but other infections need an oral antibiotic. Fungal infections of the skin are very common and include athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch, and yeast infections. Virus-related cutaneous conditions are caused by two main groups of viruses- RNA and DNA types-both of which are obligatory intracellular parasites.
