How to Recognize a Skin Infection, Rash or Irritation

If you’ve never experienced a skin issue, you might wonder how to spot an infection. Common symptoms of skin infections and irritations include:

  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Blisters
  • Skin peeling or scaling 
  • Bumps

What Causes Skin Infections and Rashes?

The skin is continually exposed to external factors, which can lead to various reactions, making it challenging to identify the exact cause of an infection or irritation. While some individuals may know precisely what triggered their skin issue, it is not uncommon to be unsure about the underlying cause of the problem. These issues are commonly caused by the following:

  • Bacteria
  • Fungi
  • Viruses
  • Parasites
  • Allergens
  • Irritants
  • Sun exposure
  • Hormonal changes
  • Autoimmune disorders
