Symptoms of Skin Infection!

The symptoms of a skin infection vary depending on the type. Common symptoms include redness of the skin and a rash. You may also experience other symptoms, such as itching, pain, and tenderness.

See a dermatologist if you have pus-filled blisters or a skin infection that doesn’t improve or gets progressively worse. Skin infections can spread beyond the skin and into the bloodstream. When this happens it can become life-threatening.

Signs of a severe infection include:

  • pus
  • blisters
  • skin sloughing, breakdown
  • dark, necrotic appearing skin, or skin that becomes discolored and painful.
