Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Infected insect bite on the leg of a 19 year old woman. She was bitten whilst in Thailand. Swabs taken from the bite show the infection is caused by a group A Streptococcus sp. bacteria. These bacteria are commonly found on the skin and in the throat and usually cause no problem. However, they can infect open wounds, causing inflammation and pus. Treatment is with antibiotics.
