Skin infections like boils, abscesses, cellulitis, folliculitis, impetigo, ringworm, chicken pox, and many others are relatively common, and they affect different people in different ways. In many cases, it can be difficult to diagnose a skin infection properly because they cause similar symptoms. Anyone experiencing a skin infection that persists more than a few days or that becomes significantly worse in a 24-hour period should seek prompt medical care from a licensed dermatologist. Though most bacterial, viral, and fungal skin infections are mostly benign, some can become life-threatening if not treated properly and promptly.
