Bacterial Skin Infections

Bacterial Skin Infections are caused by the presence and growth of microorganisms that damage host tissue. The extent of infection is generally determined by how many organisms are present and the toxins they release. There are many types of bacteria, both good and bad. In fact, most bacterial species cannot cause disease. Many species even play beneficial roles producing antibiotics and foodstuffs. Our bodies are covered with commensal bacteria that make up the normal flora, however some types of skin bacteria can be harmful.
