You are talking about the processes involved with bacterial infection

Colonisation is when a bacterial strain invades a region of your body and starts to rapidly divide - it sets up a new colony

Infection is similar but only usually used for opportunistic pathogenic bacteria - that is it does not usually refer to bacteria that normally inhabit us

Localised infection is restricted to a ceratin region of your body

Systemic infection means that the infection is throughout your body. This usually means that the bacteria have been able to invade either your ciculatory system or the lymphatic system and spread
