In brief: Pain/redness

The signs of any bacterial infection are: redness, swelling, pain, heat.
In medical school most of us learned the latin: rubor, tumor, dolor and calor (yes, doctors are nerds for the most part). :) these symptoms worsen along with the severity of infection (i.e. Dark fiery red is worse than light pink). If the infection gets more serious, you can have fevers as well.
