Diagnosis techniques, differential diagnosis, patient characteristics, and management issues specific to each condition (cellulitis, impetigo, folliculitis, wound infections, abscesses, erysipelas, and acute paronychia) are presented. Appropriate antimicrobial therapy (oral and topical), antimicrobial activity of the various agents, pathogens involved, and resistant organisms are reviewed in detail. Special patient populations, including diabetics, immunocompromised, and penicillin-allergic patients are also discussed.
