Our urgent care providers are good at treating skin infections in Novi MI and cannot wait to meet you.
They are good at determining when you need more advanced care with a specialist or a hospital and can communicate with your primary care physician.
At PrimeCare we evaluate and treat skin infections on all areas of the body. Common skin infections are caused by fungus or bacteria.
Bacterial skin infections:
Generally, bacterial skin infections often start with a break in the skin from injury or bite and bacteria invades causing red, swollen, painful, warm skin. Sometimes drainage or foul odor will develop. When a pocket of infection forms under the skin, this is called an abscess.
At PrimeCare we can prescribe antibiotics, manage pain, and perform incision & drainage of abscess as necessary to treat bacterial skin infections. We can also obtain cultures of wounds to ensure appropriate and effective treatment.
Fungal skin infections often develop in skin folds or covered areas on the body. Generally, skin will be itchy, dry, red, and peeling or scaling. At PrimeCare we can prescribe medications to treat fungal infections and perform testing as needed.
We are often asked if we can treat people over the phone for skin infections in Novi MI. While some conditions may permit a telemed visit, most ailments are better diagnosed when we can put our eyes on our patients. Most conditions are common but we can often find something on an exam that may point us in a direction to a better diagnosis.
One of the things we take pride in is that we make sure to communicate with your primary provider when we make a diagnosis or get closer to figuring out why you have your current symptoms. After your visit we will send over any results we have from tests that we perform and any paperwork that will help your primary doctor continue to care for you. We understand what it means to be patient centered!
