Skin And Skin Structure Infections (SSSI) Caused By Bacteria overview

Skin and Skin Structure Infections (SSSIs) caused by bacteria encompass a spectrum of infections affecting the skin and underlying tissues, varying from mild to severe and instigated by diverse bacteria. Notable culprits include Staphylococcus aureus, including methicillin-resistant strains (MRSA), Streptococcus pyogenes (group A Streptococcus), and other streptococcal species. SSSI can manifest as cellulitis, erysipelas, impetigo, folliculitis, furuncles, and abscesses, with distinct clinical presentations. Risk factors include compromised immune function, chronic conditions, skin injuries, and surgery. Diagnosis relies on clinical evaluation and occasionally laboratory tests. Antibiotics tailored to the causative bacteria are pivotal for treatment, especially in severe cases or suspected MRSA infections. Prevention involves wound care, hygiene, and managing underlying conditions to avert complications like deep tissue infections or sepsis.
