SKIN BACTERIAL INFECTION
Bacterial skin infections are fairly common and can range in severity from mild to life-threatening. Most bacterial infections are caused by Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes. Bacterial skin infections often begin as small, red bumps that slowly increase in size. A bacterial infection can take many different forms depending on its location, type, even the age of the affected individual. In the most serious cases, a bacterial infection can spread to the bloodstream and cause sepsis, which may be life-threatening.
