Bacterial and fungal skin infections
Keywords: bacterial skin infections, fungal skin infections
AbstractThe skin is the largest organ of the body and provides an effective barrier against infection.1,2 Although many bacteria come in contact with or reside on the skin, they are normally unable to establish an infection. When bacterial skin infections do occur, they can range from mild to potentially life-threatening.2 Mild infections may be treatable with over-the-counter (OTC) medications and home remedies, whereas more serious infections may require referral to the doctor.1
