Carbuncle complications

Complications could include:

  • A skin abscess, sometimes also known as a boil, is a bump on the skin, usually filled with translucent fluid. These are caused by bacterial infection and are generally harmless.
  • One life-threatening complication of infection is sepsis, which often occurs in people who are elderly or have weak immune systems. Patches of discolored skin is a symptom of severe sepsis.
  • Endocarditis is inflammation of the inner lining of the heart. Possible symptoms of this condition include pale skin, chills, and night sweats.
  • A bone infection may occur when bacteria or fungi invade the bone, causing many symptoms, including fever, redness, stiffness, and swelling.
