In brief: Pain, red, warmth..
Look for redness, swelling of the skin, soreness, and warmth; possibly with a raised center, maybe with a "head", a discharge, or scab-like area.
Often at the site of a minor injury such as small cut or bug bite. Might increase in size. If so, or if you have any doubt, see your health care provider.
