    How Can Erysipelas Be Prevented?

    Although erysipelas can’t always be prevented, you can take the following steps to lower your risk:

    • Always keep wounds clean.
    • Treat athlete’s foot if you have it.
    • Use moisturizers to prevent skin from drying and cracking.
    • Try not to scratch your skin.
    • Make sure any skin problems, such as eczema, are treated effectively.

    You can also prevent future incidences of erysipelas by attending follow-up appointments with your doctor. They can make sure that the infection hasn’t come back or spread to other parts of the body.
