Those with skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, or fungal infections are also at risk. Although bacteria on the skin is normal, they can be dangerous when they get under your skin. An infection happens when the person has a weak immune system or other risk factors.
Infected areas look swollen and red, feeling hot and painful. Most of the cases are quite mild and will go away after a few days. However, sometimes it will become more serious and will require treatment. Otherwise, it has the potential to be fatal and will require a visit to the doctor.
It is advisable to avoid taking antibiotics whenever possible because it has severe effects on the gut.
