A dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in conditions involving the skin, hair, and nails. Dermatology can help individuals to overcome acne, examine skin spots, receive skin cancer screening, treat eczema or psoriasis, and more. Your skin can tell all when it comes to things that may be occurring under the surface. If you feel as if your skin looks or feels different than usual, dermatology can help.
A skin infection is a condition where bacteria or other germs enter the skin through a wound and spread, causing pain, swelling, and discoloration.Infections usually come from one of three main causes: bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Yeasts and parasites can cause them, too. Many of these are harmless on the surface of your skin, and bacteria in particular are plentiful on all human skin. But when they enter a break in the skin, trouble can start.
