Cause of skin Fungus infections

The classification of bacterial skin infections (pyodermas) is an attempt to integrate various clinical entities in an organized manner. An arbitrary but useful classification for primary and secondary bacterial infections is presented in . The list is not complete and includes only the more common skin diseases.

Primary Infections

ImpetigoThree forms of impetigo are recognized on the basis of clinical, bacteriologic, and histologic findings. The lesions of common or superficial impetigo may contain group A β-hemolytic streptococci, S aureus, or both, and controversy exists about which of these organisms is the primary pathogen. The lesions have a thick, adherent, recurrent, dirty yellow crust with an erythematous margin. This form of impetigo is the most common skin infection in children. Impetigo in infants is highly contagious and requires prompt treatment.

The lesions in bullous (staphylococcal) impetigo, which are always caused by S aureus, are superficial, thin-walled, and bullous. When a lesion ruptures, a thin, transparent, varnish-like crust appears which can be distinguished from the stuck-on crust of common impetigo. This distinctive appearance of bullous impetigo results from the local action of the epidermolytic toxin (exfoliation). The lesions most often are found in groups in a single reglon.

Ecthyma is a deeper form of impetigo. Lesions usually occur on the legs and other areas of the body that are generally covered, and they often occur as a complication of debility and infestation. The ulcers have a punched-out appearance when the crust or purulent materials are removed. The lesions heal slowly and leave scars.

Cellulitis and ErysipelasStreptococcus pyogenes is the most common agent of cellulitis, a diffuse inflammation of loose connective tissue, particularly subcutaneous tissue. The pathogen generally invades through a breach in the skin surface, and infection is fostered by the presence of tissue edema. Cellulitis may arise in normal skin. However, the lesion of cellulitis is erythematous, edematous, brawny, and tender, with borders that are poorly defined.

Yeast is a kind of fungus.

"A yeast infection, also known as candidiasis (pronounced: can-dih-dy-uh-sis), is the name for a common infection caused by a type of yeast-like fungus called Candida. Small numbers of Candida are always present in our bodies, but normally we have the right balance of bacteria and other factors to keep them from growing too much. Sometimes, though, these yeast-like fungi do grow too much, and this can cause an infection. These infections usually occur in warm, moist parts of the body, such as the mouth and moist areas of skin

One of the problems with Shar-pei is the stiff, bristly coat. The hairs irritate the skin, making it raw, and opening it up for bacterial infections and fungus.
Not sure there's any cure, cause the dog will always have this bristly coat.
One inexpensive thing that could be done is weekly, or twice weekly baths in tea tree oil shampoo.
The shampoo can be made inexpensively:
Mix in about 1/4oz tea tree oil with some inexpensive shampoo.
Everything can be found at WalMart.

  • Avatar caribgirl What is the best way to treat hair loss caused by alopecia?
    Sep 08, 2006 by caribgirl | Posted in Hair

    Some women are sufferiing hair loss due to different types of skin fungus they maybe because of transferance, the use of someone's comb, chemicals, stress or inviromental causes

    • Alopecia, which is an autoimmune deficiency and NOT transferrable, can be treated... One of the BEST treatments is using either topical or injected steroids directly on the bald spot... The injections can be done by a licensed dermatologist and will stimulate regrowth in the area... This will NOT stop the hair from falling out, this will only give the hair follicles a "kick start" in growing again. Hope this helps!

  • Avatar Jon B Why does violating the integrity of the outer skin of fruits that ripen off the tree or vine terminate ripenin?

    What is the mechanism by which skin violation with a knife or bruising of a fruit that ripens off the tree such as peaches and nectarines terminates the ripening process and instead initiates the rotting process? Why has the quality of the commercial production of pit fruits become steadily worse over the past 15 to 20 years?

    • Actually, the ripening of fruit may be accelerated by breaking the skin. "There are two types of fruit: climacteric and non-climacteric. Climacteric fruits continue ripening after being picked (which will be acceler …s the biosynthesis of endogenous ethylene. The bananas ripen, then are sold.

      The picking of unripe fruit and artificial ripening later is not uncommon."

  • Avatar sasperilla23 The last few weeks dime sized pink blotches have started to appear on my neck. Anyone know what it is?
    Oct 11, 2009 by sasperilla23 | Posted in Skin Conditions

    The pink/ light red blotches do not itch and they are smooth and not raised above the skin. I'm taking Uloric for Uric Acid control from gout, and Trilipix for high triglycerides. I have PCOS, which is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

    Oct 09, 2009 by January | Posted in Skin Conditions

    I just got a few that are under the skin on my chin and it really itches. It's not like dried out or anything and I haven't used any creams or stuff yet so its not because of an allergic reaction or anything like that. It's really bugging me. How can I make it stop?

    • Hi,

      These are my thoughts of what might be happening - I have not been educated to be an M.D. - just a lifelong learner.

      What I have learned is that my stresses have oftentimes caused me to …om my own mistakes and would not duplicate them – please pass on what you will learn from your own malady to your family friends neighbors and acquaintances. My best to you and yours. AI - nutritionIsT ><3>[(-:]
