Common Skin Infections & Treatment Options
Most skin infections happen when a virus, bacteria, or fungus enters the skin through an opening, such as a cut or scrape. There are many different types of skin infections, and some common ones include:
- Boils and abscesses
We can provide treatment for most skin infections when they are in their early stages. Typically, one of our providers will prescribe an antibiotic to clear the infection. If you have an abscess or boil, it may need to be drained. However, while minor skin infections can be easily treated at our urgent care center, more serious or advanced infections require emergency treatment. If there are red streaks stemming from the affected area or you are experiencing a high fever in conjunction with a skin infection, you should visit your nearest emergency room.
