There are different types of infections that can cause illness. Many of these are either categorized as bacterial or fungal infections, which can cause infections on the skin or inside the body. Medication and treatment are often needed to overcome infections and restore health. At Beverly Hills Concierge Doctor, we offer bacterial/fungus infections treatment at our urgent care clinic in the Los Angeles, CA, metro area.
Types of Bacterial Infections
Bacteria are everywhere, including your skin and inside your body. Many bacteria are helpful and contribute to your health, but some can be extremely dangerous. When your immune system is unable to kill off bad bacteria, they can cause a bacterial infection. Even good bacteria can cause an infection if they multiply in the wrong area. Some of the types of bacterial infections include:
- Food poisoning (i.e., E.coli)
- Skin infections
- Some respiratory infections
- Ear and sinus infections
- Some STD/STIs
- Urinary tract infections
Symptoms of bacterial infections vary, depending on where the infection is located. A common symptom is fever and there is often inflammation. Bacterial infections may require antibiotics to kill the bacteria.
Fungus or fungi are all around us and in the air. There are many different types of fungi that can cause fungus-related diseases. Healthy people are usually able to come in contact with fungi on their skin or entering the lungs without illness, but those with immune system deficiencies may be susceptible to fungal infections. Some of the more common types of fungal infections include:
- Fungal toenail infections
- Vaginal yeast infections
There are also more serious fungal infections that occur in different parts of the world or affect immune-compromised individuals. The symptoms vary greatly, depending on the type of fungal infection. To rid the skin or body of fungus, treatment with anti-fungal medications is needed.
