    00:02 Okay, having made the diagnosis, let's talk about some downstream complications of skin and soft tissue infections.

    00:08 First off, sepsis and bacteremia.

    00:11 We're certainly more worried about that in anyone whose immunocompromised and there can be some significant hematogenous complications of bacteremia.

    00:18 And here they are: Septic arthritis, endocarditis which he's already susceptible for in light of his injection drug use, and then osteomyelitis as well particularly in folks with diabetes.

    00:29 In addition, there are some immune-mediated complications that can occur as well: staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis again which could occur weeks after the initial infection and then toxic shock syndrome which is most commonly seen in necrotizing fasciitis.
