What Are Skin Infections?
Skin infections are a common issue among our Brentwood, Antioch, and Franklin, TN patients. These infections can occur at any place on the body and may be the result of a virus, bacteria, fungi that gets under the skin, or more. At Brentwood Skin Clinic, dermatologist Dr. Austin Mitchell and his team treat a variety of skin infections, including impetigo, molluscum contagiosum, shingles, staph infection, athlete's foot, ringworm, and more. Some common symptoms of a skin condition include:
- Skin itching
- Pain and/or swelling
- Oozing, crusty sores
- Scaly patches
- Red skin
If you or one of your family members have symptoms of a skin infection, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mitchell at our Nashville, TN office as soon as possible.
How Are Skin Infections Treated?
Skin infections vary, depending on the type and your particular symptoms. They can also impact people differently. When you visit a dermatologist, like Dr. Mitchell, you can receive a proper diagnosis with an appropriate treatment plan. In one of our private treatment rooms, we will examine your skin and discuss your symptoms. We may collect a sample of your skin in order to perform a skin culture, which will help us determine the type of skin infection you have. Once we establish what skin infection you have, we can create a treatment plan, which might include oral antibiotics, antifungal creams, topical corticosteroids, or more. Generally, with proper treatment, you can expect your skin infection to heal between three days and a few weeks.
Brentwood Skin Clinic Reviews
Doctor treated me two years ago and I am still very grateful!! because I thought that I would never be able to get rid of acne on my face and I would never be able to show my face well!! with much love your patient yessica lozano!!
Dr. Mitchell and his staff are INCREDIBLE!! 2 weeks ago, I started getting a rash on my upper body that began spreading. I went to 2 other doctors who misdiagnosed me and had me do expensive and ineffective treatments. I then broke out in hives on top of the other rash that was still spreading. I called Brentwood Skin Clinic and due to a cancellation, they got me in that same day! Dr. Mitchell was able to tell me what was actually going on, gave me the treatment to cure it, and laid out the steps we would take if this first treatment didn’t work for some reason. He took the time to answer all my questions, and I had a LOT. I could tell that Dr. Mitchell and his staff really genuinely care about the well-being of their patients. I have already recommended him to one of my coworkers, and would recommend him to anyone else who needs to see a good dermatologist!
They are always customer service oriented and do a great job for their patients. Dr Mitchell is knowledge and friendly.
This is a great place to go and you will be treated well.
I sent in on the patient portal an appointment request, the next day Dr. Mitchell called me asking about the problem. He explained what he was planning on doing and got the appointment set up.My wife & I have been a patient for about a year now and very grateful for locating such an amazing Dermatologist & staff. I'd highly recommend Brentwood Skin to anyone looking for a doctor who really cares for your best care then Dr. Mitchell and his staff is the one to call.
