Erythema is another sign of bone infection that some individuals may experience. This is a superficial and abnormal redness of the skin or mucous membranes.

It typically appears in the area where the infection is located, and it's commonly caused by inflammation in the tissues surrounding the site of the bone infection. Along with localized discomfort and swelling, erythema may be one of the first signs of a bone infection.4‘Erythema.’ Merriam-Webster, Merriam-Webster, www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/erythema
