- Erysipelas is an acute streptococcal bacterial infection of the dermis resulting in a red, swollen, warm, hardened and painful rash, similar in consistency to an orange peel. The infection may occur on any part of the skin including the face, arms, fingers, legs and toes, but it tends to favor the extremities. Fat tissue is most susceptible to infection, and facial areas typically around the eyes, ears, and cheeks.
- It is less commonly known as “Ignis sacer”, “Holy fire”, or “St Anthony’s fire”
- Erysipelas is also the name given to an infection in animals caused by the Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae. Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae can also infect humans, but in that case the infection is known as erysipeloid.
