Teresita G. Gabriel, M.D.</p> <p>Treatment</p> <p>For limited, localized infections:</p> <p> Mupirocin 2% or fusidic acid ointment or cream is used 3x a day for 7-10 days.</p> <p>For widespread infections:</p> <p> Oral antibiotics are administered. A penicillinase re-sistant antibiotic such as cloxacillin 250 mg, cefalexin 250 mg 4x a day or sodium fusidate 250-500 mg BID is prescribed. See table for other drugs.</p> <p>ecthyma</p> <p>Ecthyma is a deeper bacterial infection characterized by an ulcerative staphylococcal or streptococcal pyoderma, nearly always of the shins or dorsal feet.</p> <p>Ecthyma is characterized by a saucer-shaped ulcer with a raw base and elevated edges. Lesions usually heal with scarring.</p> <p>Treatment</p> <p> Cleansing with soap and water, followed by applica-tion of mupirocin, bacitracin, or fusidic acid, thrice a day.</p> <p> Cloxacillin or a first-generation cephalosporin must be given orally or parenterally.</p> <p>folliculitis</p> <p>Folliculitis, a staphylococcal infection, is an inflamma-tion of the hair follicle characterized by papules, pustule, erosion or crust.</p> <p>Distribution is variable, often the scalp, arms, legs, axil-lae and trunk are involved. It occurs as dome-shaped pustules with small erythematous halos arise in the center of the follicle.</p> <p>S. aureus is the most common infecting organism.</p> <p>Treatment</p> <p> Heat, friction and occlusion should be minimized.</p> <p> Antibacterial soap, warm compresses, and topical antibiotics are used</p> <p> Mupirocin or fusidic acid is effective in limited, su-perficial involvement.</p> <p> Organism Drug of Choice alternative Group Penicillin Erythromycin A Strep Benzathine PCN Cefalexin &lt; 6 years old 600,000 units, IM &gt; 7 years old 1.2M units Staphylococcus Dicloxacillin Cefalexin aureus 40-50mg/kg/day (child) Amoxicillin 20 mg/kg/day GAS &amp; Erythromycin Clarithromycin S. aureus 40 mg/kg/day Azithromycin (children) Clindamycin 15 mg/kg/day (children) MRSA Minocycline Cotrimoxazole (Methicillin- Sodium Fusidate Ciprofloxacin Resistant 250-500mg/tab, Staphylococcus BID or TID aureus) for 7-14 days </p> <p>CpM 8tH eDitiON COMMON baCterial iNfeCtiONs</p> <p>than 2 years old.</p> <p> Hib serves as chemoprophylaxis of household mem- bers in patients less than 4 years old who are unim- munized.</p> <p>erysipelas</p> <p>Erysipelas is an acute inflammatory form of cellulitis with prominent lymphatic involvement</p> <p>Characterized by more superficial and has margins that are more clearly demarcated from normal skin.</p> <p>Prodromal symptoms consists of malaise, chills, fever and occasionally, anorexia and vomiting.</p> <p>Treatment</p> <p> Penicillin V orally (20 to 50 mg 4x a day) is the drug of choice. Erythromycin can also be used.</p> <p> Azithromycin 500 mg on day 1 and 250 mg on days 2 to 5, or clarithromycin 250 to 500 mg every 12 hours for 7 to 14 days are alternatives for patients who can-not take penicillin.</p> <p>paronychia</p> <p>Paronychia is a condition wherein there is an inflamma-tory reaction involving the folds of the skin surrounding the fingernail.</p> <p>Paronychia is characterized by acute or chronic puru-lent, tender, and painful swellings of the tissues around the nail.</p> <p>Causative bacteria are usually Staph. aureus, Streptococ-cus pyogenes, Pseudomonas, Proteus sp or anaerobes.</p> <p>Treatment</p> <p> Protection against trauma. Cover with a bandage or dressing.</p> <p> Incision and drainage should be done on acutely in- flamed pyogenic abscesses.</p> <p> For acute suppurative paronychia due to S. aureus, a semisynthetic penicillin or a first-generation ce-pha- losporin maybe given orally. Sodium fusidate tablet 250-500 mg BID or TID is also effective.</p> <p>leg ulcers</p> <p>Leg ulcer is a chronic, nonhealing lesion located on the medial aspect of the leg associated with chronic venous insufficiency (F&gt;M), chronic arterial insufficiency, pe-</p> <p> Oral antistaphylococcal antibiotics (oxacillin, cloxacillin, cefuroxime, Na fusidate are indicated for extensive cases.)</p> <p>furuncles &amp; Carbuncles</p> <p>A furuncle (boil) is a walled-off, deep, painful, fluctuant mass enclosing a collection of pus, often involving from staphylococcal folliculitis.</p> <p>A carbuncle is an extremely painful, deep, intercon-nected aggregate of infected follicles (coalescing furuncles).</p> <p>Treatment </p> <p> Warm, moist compresses are applied 15 to 30 minutes several times a day. </p> <p> Drainage is the primary management for fluctuant lesions.</p> <p> Nasal carriage of Staph. aureus is eradicated by mupi-rocin 2% cream or fusidic acid cream applied to the anterior nares BID for 5 days. For persistent coloniza-tion, rifampin 600 mg once a day and cloxacillin 500 mg 4x a day, for 7 to 10 days is prescribed.</p> <p> Oral anti-staphylococcal antibiotics.</p> <p>Cellulitis</p> <p>Cellulitis is an infection of the dermis and subcutane-ous tissue characterized by red, hot, tender-to-painful plaque with an indefinite border may cover a small or wide area</p> <p>In adults and children most often caused by Group A Streptococcus (-hemolytic) and Staphylococcus aureus.</p> <p>Facial, periorbital, head &amp; neck involvement in children less than 2 years old is most commonly caused by H. influenza.</p> <p>Treatment</p> <p> Warm compresses to relieve pain.</p> <p> Elevation of the leg hastens recovery.</p> <p> Analgesics</p> <p> Empiric treatment with antibiotics aimed at Staphy- lococcal and Streptococcal organisms is appropri-ate.</p> <p> Ampicillin for children because it has coverage for H.influenza.</p> <p> Hib immunization in children has dramatically re- duced the incidence of cellulitis in children less </p> <p>COMMON baCterial iNfeCtiONs CpM 8tH eDitiON</p> <p>methicillin-resistant strains) and Streptococcus.</p> <p>2.

Excellent permeability</p> <p>protective device for wound healing</p> <p>Protect the wound from further damage, such as contact with dirt, soil or insects, by applying protective gauze or dressing. Dressings may also help reduce odor and help absorption of moisture especially in highly exuda-tive wounds. Wound dressings are also beneficial in improving the appearance of wound site and may even help promote the functional use of the affected part.</p> <p>As a further precaution, dressings must be changed frequently and disposed immediately.</p> <p>ripheral sensory neuropathy or DM.

It affects the intertrigi-nous areas of the toes, groins and axillae.</p> <p>Present as sharply marginated, brownish-red, scaling patches on affected areas.</p> <p>Predisposing factors include diabetes, warm, humid climate and prolonged occlusion of the skin.</p> <p>Treatment</p> <p> Wash with benzoyl peroxide (bar or wash) or any antibacterial soap</p> <p> Benzoyl peroxide (2.5%) gel daily for 7 days or topi-cal erythromycin solution BID for 7 days.
