Another skin infection caused by S. Aureus is Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) which peels the skin’s stratum granulosum layer off causing desquamation. This is due to the toxins ability to hydrolyze desmoglein 1 which holds the keratinocytes together and the absence of desmoglein 3 in granulosum layer. The effects are red bright skin.
Skin is the biggest organ in human body and can be affected by many disease processes. One of them is shingles, a very contagious disease that is caused by varicella zoster virus (VZV). Shingles is caused by reactivation of a previous infection with this virus that results in a very painful localized skin rash usually with blisters (fluid-filled sacs) on top of reddish skin. After a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus stays dormant (inactive) in the body and reactivates years later, causing shingles (Center for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2015).
