Most bacterial skin infections will cause red swollen bumps to appear that can look similar to pimples on your skin.

The bacterial infection of your skin is most commonly caused by strains of Staphylococcus and Streptococcus that are gram-positive.

And depending on the cause of the bacterial skin infection the skin infection can look just like a regular skin rash or could cause an open sore on the skin.
