Skin infections


Bacterial skin infections often begin as small, red bumps that slowly increase in size. Some bacterial infections are mild and easily treated with topical antibiotics, but other infections require an oral antibiotic.


Fungal skin infections are caused by a fungus and are most likely to develop in damp areas of the body, such as the feet or armpit. Some fungal infections aren’t contagious, and these infections are typically non-life-threatening.


Different types of fungal infections:

  • Athlete’s foot
  • Yeast infection
  • Ringworm
  • Nail fungus
