Soft Tissue Infections

Millions of people seek medical assistance for skin and soft tissue infections every year. These infections can range from mild to severe and are the result of a microbial invasion of the skin and the tissues supporting it. The most common soft tissue infections are caused by staphylococcus and streptococcus bacteria, and many of these can be treated on an outpatient basis – they are commonly referred to as cellulitis. But more complicated infections such as necrotizing fasciitis may require hospitalization. Patients who have chronic skin conditions such as eczema, who are overweight, have had radiation therapy or have sustained a recent skin wound are at greater risk for soft tissue infections. Beyond those previously named, other common skin infections include abscesses, boils and carbuncles. Treating these infections usually includes the use of antibiotics along with measures to keep the area dry and clean. While most types of cellulitis aren’t very contagious, thorough handwashing and maintaining separate towels is very important with regard to the patient and their caregiver.
