Bacterial Skin Infections

Bacteria can invade your skin and cause an infection.  Although infections can happen after your skin is damaged via a cut or an abrasion, they can sometimes occur without any type of injury.  One of the main functions of the skin is to protect the body from infection.  However, since your skin is the largest organ of your body, skin infections are one of the most common reasons patients seek medical care.  Some skin infections are minor, others can be serious

 

Bacteria can cause many types of skin infections:
