Skin Infections and Skin Cancer

Infectious diseases of the skin is a field related to the analysis and treatment of bacterial, viral and fungal disorders that can present with skin findings. These infectious conditions range the spectrum from common entities such as folliculitis, impetigo, fungus, molluscum contagiosum and herpes, to more uncommon clinical entities, such as syphilis and leprosy. Patients with HIV, the cause for AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), are at an increased risk for developing a variety of skin problems or diseases because of their compromised immune system. HIV-related skin infections may create or show up from viral, fungal, skin malignancies, skin allergies or from adverse drug interactions. Skin cancers are malignancies that arise from the skin. They are due to the growth of abnormal cells that can invade or spread to other parts of the body. There are three types of skin cancers: basal-cell skin cancer, squamous-cell skin cancer and melanoma.
