Bacterial Pyoderma


Presentation

  • Staphylococcal bullous impetigo does not jeopardize the general health of the individual, and fever is only present when there are multiple lesions.[scielo.br]
Asymptomatic
  • Lesions are usually asymptomatic and may sometimes show mild itching or burning.[scielo.br]
Anemia
  • The main risk factor for furunculosis is a positive family history, but cases of anemia, previous anti-biotic therapy, diabetes mellitus, previous hospitalization, multiple injuries, personal hygiene and associated skin diseases need to be considered.[scielo.br]
Lymphedema
  • Long-term therapy for lymphedema is essential to prevent recurrence of erysipelas and aggravation of lymphatic disorder. 17 The therapeutic management of erysipelas consists in the introduction of antibiotics together with general measures, such as rest[scielo.br]
Malnutrition
  • Factors such as low socio-economic status, malnutrition and immunodeficiency considerably influence its evolution.[scielo.br]
Weakness
  • […] the most common form of skin infection, and it affects all ages. 4 Staphylococcal folliculitis, caused by coagulasepositive strains of Staphylococcus ( S. aureus ), is the most common infectious folliculitis; however, when the host's immune system is weak[scielo.br]
Aspiration
  • The smear of the aspirated vesicle fluid subjected to direct microscopy and Gram-stained reveals the presence of Gram-positive cocci, and culture of the exudate beneath the crusts can reveal group A streptococci or staphylococci. 7,8 The differential[scielo.br]
Thrombosis
  • Although relatively new, it shows great promise in treating a variety of gram-positive organisms, including MRSA. 14 Taking into account the low risk of deep vein thrombosis (4.9%), the systematic use of prophylactic anticoagulation drugs is not indicated[scielo.br]
Acneiform Eruption
Eruptions
  • It is important to differentiate bullous impetigo from bullous drug eruption, bullous tinea, chickenpox, herpes simplex, staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, as well as other less correlated conditions - dermatitis herpetiformis, erythema multiforme,[scielo.br]
Insect Bite
  • It may result from impetigo that has not been properly treated. 1 The infection can occur on sites of insect bites, lesions of scabies or pruriginous dermatosis.[scielo.br]
Skin Lesion
  • The bacterium can also implant on pre-existing skin lesions caused by eczema or scabies, a condition called impetiginization. 4 The diagnosis is achieved through clinical examination.[scielo.br]
Kidney Failure
  • failure. 15 In a nosocomial environment and when there is strong suspicion of infection with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin and, more recently, linezolid are recommended alternatives. 15 Linezolid is the first of a new[scielo.br]
Hematuria
  • The severity of renal involvement ranges from asymptomatic microscopic hematuria with normal renal function to acute renal failure.[scielo.br]

Workup

Staphylococcus Aureus
  • The main bacteria involved in the etiology of pyodermitis are Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes.[scielo.br]

Treatment

  • Treatment of folliculitis with monochromatic excimer light (308 nm).[scielo.br]

Etiology

  • The main bacteria involved in the etiology of pyodermitis are Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes.[scielo.br]

Prevention

  • Currently, prevention and early intervention are the mainstays of therapy. 26 Nuchal keloid folliculitis is characterized by deep folliculitis with scarring or perifoliculitis, which occurs in the posterior, inferior occipital and nuchal region of the[scielo.br]
