Klinik für Dermatologie, Venerologie, Allergologie, Universitätsklinik Essen, Essen.

Erysipelas is a bacterial soft tissue infection caused by β-haemolytic streptococci that spreads proximally along the lymphatic system of the skin. The entry sites of the pathogens can be minor injuries or chronic wounds. The diagnosis of erysipelas is made clinically by the spreading eythema and overheating of the skin, the reduced general condition with fever and chills as well as by means of serological inflammation parameters and must be distinguished from numerous differential diagnoses.

Department of Emergency Medicine, West Virginia University, 1 Medical Center Drive, Box 9149, Morgantown, WV 26506, USA.

The skin is the largest, and arguably, the most vulnerable organ in the human body. Scratches and scrapes, bites and puncture wounds, impetigo and erysipelas-all these disruptions can lead to pain, swelling, and/or systemic symptoms. In this article, which is based on the Infectious Diseases Society of America's 2014 guidelines and the World Society of Emergency Surgery and Surgical Infection Society of Europe's 2018 consensus statement, a structured approach to skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) is reviewed, comparing treatment for suppurative and non-suppurative infections, and then discussing specific conditions commonly seen in Primary Care and Urgent Care facilities.
