Compression is important in erysipelas treatment
Erysipelas is a common skin infection involving the lymphatic vessels, which induces an oedema. This has a tendency of persisting after infection is treated. The lymphatic system plays an important role in the immune system, and the impaired lymph drainage leads to a state of local immune deficiency. This is essential to the pathogenesis of recurrent erysipelas, as each episode of erysipelas further damages the lymphatic system and increases the risk of a new infection. This vicious circle makes it important to treat both erysipelas and oedema appropriately to reduce recurrence and morbidity.
