Erythrasma- Symptom, Causes, Treatment of Erythrasma


Erythrasma is the skin infection that is induced by the bacterium Corynebacterium minutissimum.

Erythrasma can impact the skin between the toes to induce flaking, cracking and sogginess which resemble the emergence of athletes foot. It can also appear in skin folds such as the groins, between the buttocks, below the breasts and in the armpits, causing asymmetric pink-brown scaly patches which seems like intertrigo. The infection is establish primarily in adults, and is more frequent in diabetics and people living in tropical climates.

It is essential to differentiate erythrasma from fungal skin infections. Doctors can promptly do this by examining the impacted skin with wood's light (ultraviolet light filtered through a specific glass), under which erythrasma exhibits a symptomatic coral-red fluorescence. The condition clears up quickly when treated with appropriate antibiotics by mouth. Antibacterial soaps may assist to prevent ecurrence.
