Treatments for Skin Infections
Most people think of bacterial infections when they think of itchy skin. However, skin diseases can be the result of various infections not just with bacteria, but with viruses, and fungi. Some infections, such as fungi, can present as itchy skin, while others may be painful such as those of bacterial or viral origin.
Skin infection treatment, therefore, would only work correctly with proper diagnosis of the exact type of infection. Antibiotics only work on a bacterial infection, while there are anti-viral and anti-fungal medications that work on viruses and fungi respectively.
If you have itchy skin, you may not have an infection at all and maybe having a type of dermatitis or eczema.
Dermatologists specialize in all types of skin diseases and are trained to start proper forms of skin infection treatment. Upon taking a proper history, and careful exam, Dr. Kormeili is able to diagnose and render proper treatment from itchy skin to any other types of skin diseases. Please feel free to make your appointment for us to help you.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
