Bacterial infections such as erysipelas, cellulitis, furuncle, carbuncle, or folliculitis are common infections of the skin, which is the largest organ of the body that forms a protective layer by wrapping the body. These skin bacterial infections of the skin are very important in pediatric medicine and primary health care. These infections usually occur when skin integrity is impaired. Skin integrity should be preserved with personal hygiene measures, and a multidisciplinary approach should be given to these skin infections with appropriate antibiotic regimens and when necessary, with dermatology and pediatric infectious disease consultations.
