Erysipelas, characterised as a superficial form of cellulitis, is a potentially harmful bacterial infection that is known to commonly affect the outermost layers of the skin. This is a skin condition that typically presents as bright red, swollen skin that may be blistered or become necrotic in the most severe of cases. Erysipelas can sometimes be referred to as St. Anthony’s fire due to the red, intense rash that is often associated with it.
Erysipelas can be a topic of insecurity for those suffering from the skin condition, leading many to seek treatment that will help to resolve any issues that they may be experiencing as a result of the skin condition. Dr Camilo Diaz of Birmingham Dermatology Clinic is on hand to help you, offering expert treatment that will help you to achieve clearer looking skin and restore your confidence.
How is Erysipelas treated?
As erysipelas is a skin condition that occurs as a result of bacterial infection, most cases can be very easily treated with a round of antibiotics prescribed by our skin care experts. This treatment type usually lasts for around 10-14 days and helps to reduce any symptoms associated with the condition.
