Skin Infection is a skin condition in which hair follicle, located in the dermal layer of the skin, becomes infected and inflamed. It is predominately caused by bacterial infections, especially Staphylococcus aureus, leading to superficial bacterial folliculitis.
A skin infection is a condition where bacteria or other germs enter the skin through a wound and spread, causing pain, swelling, and discoloration.
Infections usually come from one of three main causes: bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Yeasts and parasites can cause them, too. Many of these are harmless on the surface of your skin, and bacteria in particular are plentiful on all human skin. But when they enter a break in the skin, trouble can start.
