All across the world, skin diseases are rather frequent. The likelihood of pediculosis capitis (0.2-35 percent, 6.9-35 percent in Sub-Saharan Africa in addition to other parts of South Africa. ), pyoderma (prevalence range 0.2-35 percent, 6.9–35% in Sub-Saharan Africa and other parts of South Africa, tinea capitis (1–19.7%), scabies (0.2–24%, 1.3–17% in Sub-Saharan Africa), and viral skin illnesses (0.4–9%, mainly molluscum contagiosum,0-57 percent). A bacterial skin infection is the most frequent kind of skin infection. Numerous bacterial skin infections have been linked to necrotizing fasciitis, scarlet fever, erysipelas, erythrasma, abscesses, folliculitis, furunculosis, and impetigo. Additionally, ecthyma, furunculosis, and mycobacterium skin disorders are covered in this review. Recent studies have revealed modifications in the causes and remedies of bacterial skin infections. In the United States, the prevalence of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is rising.
