Chronic Recurrent Erysipelas


Recurrent bacterial infection of the dermis and upper subcutaneous tissue due to lymphatic damage, which predisposes to further infection and further lymphatic impairment manifesting as lymphoedema. It occurs at the same site in intervals ranging from a few weeks to months. Lack of sufficient treatment of bacterial entry-sites may also cause recurrent erysipelas.
