In brief: Skin lesions sepsis

The larger the size of the wound, the more it is colonized with bacteria, the greater the entry of foreign matter (dirt, stool, foreign bodies), the longer that you have the wound -- are just some of the things that would lead more commonly to sepsis than not.

In brief: Deep infections

Skin infections that evolve into large abscesses or ulcers or that spread to deeper tissues can cause blood infection and then sepsis.
