SAO PAULO—Former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Sunday he had to be hospitalized again in the northern city of Manaus due to a skin infection caused by a bacteria, adding there is no forecast for when he could be discharged.

Mr. Bolsonaro said on social media he was hospitalized again with erysipelas, a skin disease which he had in 2022, and again on Saturday, when he was also briefly hospitalized, according to a spokesperson.

Mr. Bolsonaro is ineligible for political office until 2030 for spreading electoral misinformation during the 2022 election, when he lost a bid for reelection to leftist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

He also has been formally accused by police of fraud related to his COVID-19 vaccination records.
