Skin forms the largest organ of the body covering total area of about 2 sq. meters. It protects human body from microbes and infection. However, due to invasion of wide variety of germs, skin itself become infected. This infection on large extent is commonly caused by bacteria, virus, fungus and parasites, thereby generating four different types of skin infections including bacterial skin infection, viral skin infection, fungal skin infection and parasitic skin infection, respectively. The causative agents infect the skin by breaking its integrity and then inoculating into the dermis, subsequently exacerbating skin infections. The body's immune system is triggered by these infection which in turn would cause inflammation and tissue damage. The degree of these infections can vary from mild to severe, depending upon the penetration of infecting agent. Some of the symptoms for severe skin infections are blisters, pus, skin breakdown and discoloring of skin. However, wound infection, on the other hand, is damaged area of skin which usually involves break into the skin. Wounds are broadly categorized into two types: surgical and traumatic. Individuals with poor blood circulation, smoking habits, malnutrition, weak immune system and diabetes are susceptible to higher risks of wound infection. Wound treatment type market has been categorized into broad segments, including Traditional, Basic, Bio-Active, Therapeutic and Advanced wound treatments.
