Types of Tissue Infections

Tissue infections can be caused by bacteria entering a wound or break in the skin. When bacteria enter through a break in the skin, they can grow beneath the surface and cause an infection. These infections can be managed using antibiotics or antifungal treatments, or other methods. In some cases, tissue infections can be more severe and cause the surrounding tissue to die. If you are experiencing a tissue infection, it is important to have it evaluated by professionals who can help manage your symptoms and provide proper care.

Tissue Infection Treatment 

There are several ways to treat or manage a tissue infection. The exact steps taken to manage an infection will depend on the cause, severity, and location. Some of the methods used by Wound Evolution include:

  • Antibiotics or antifungal treatments: These treatments may come in the form of an oral pill or a topical cream and can help fight the source of the infection. 
  • Removal of infected tissue: In order to stop the infection from spreading, some infected tissue may need to be removed. This is performed through a treatment known as medical debridement.
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy: This treatment allows you to take in pure oxygen, which can help stimulate the body’s natural healing process. 

Medical Labs for Tissue Infections

In many cases, a medical lab is used for tissue infection treatment and diagnosis. To perform a lab a small sample of tissue or cells is taken and analyzed in a lab. This can help your provider answer the following questions:

  • Diagnosis - What is the cause of the tissue infection?
  • Prognosis - How far along is the tissue infection? Is it affecting any of the surrounding areas?
  • Prevention - Are there ways to prevent the infection from spreading or returning?
  • Treatment - What is the best way to treat the infection?
