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
I recommend this place 1000%. If you want the most knowledgeable dermatologist who is also empathetic and takes the time you need with him then don’t look anywhere else. Dr. Austin Mitchell is the best! 👏🏻
This place is organized, efficient, and friendly. I only have positive things to say about my experience here. If you're looking for a dermatologist in the Nashville area, you'd be making the right decision in choosing Dr. Mitchell!
Very awesome and friendly staff. Everyone greeted me, made sure I felt comfortable, and took care of everything I asked them to do. Will definitely be back if I need more things looked at.
Had a concern regarding a small bumpy scar on my leg. Visited based on the Google reviews. Reputation is well earned! Dr. Mitchell was knowledgeable and personable. Took care of my issue that day and his office followed up with me when the standard biopsy came back with good news! Highly recommend!
