Impetigo Information


- - - - - - - - - - - - Back to Top - - - - - - - - - - - -

General Impetigo Information
Impetigo is a highly contagious bacterial skin infection. Impetigo can appear anywhere on the body, but it usually settles in exposed areas, like the face, nose, mouth and arms. Impetigo looks like patches of oozing blisters that break open, exposing red, moist skin that crusts over after a few days. Extreme cases left untreated can advance into ethymia, an ulcerated form of impetigo. Ethymia can affect deeper layers of the skin and can result in permanent scarring. Impetigo can affect people of all ages, but it is most commonly seen in children.

Possible Causes of Impetigo
The most common cause of impetigo is staphylococcus aureus and is extremely contagious. Most people get the disease by direct contact with someone who has it. Impetigo can also be contracted by sharing clothing, bedding, towels or other objects with an infected person. Because of the close physical contact and large group activities associated with childhood, impetigo is often passed between children. Other skin problems, like lice, skin infections and insect bites, can make a person prone to impetigo infection.

Possible Symptoms of Impetigo
Impetigo infection usually starts as a rough, cracked area of skin on the face or legs that changes into itchy blisters that vary in size from eraser- to dime-sized. After the blisters pop, a caramel-colored crust forms over the area. If the crust is removed by picking or scratching, a new crust forms. The infected area can spread at the edges to overtake larger areas of the body. The fluid from the blisters is what spreads the infection to others.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Impetigo
The key to treating and preventing impetigo is good hygiene and a clean living environment. If someone contracts impetigo, everyone in the household must follow strict sanitary practices to avoid spreading the infection. The infected person should use a clean towel after every bath; the linens used by the infected person must be laundered separately. Regular washing with mild soap and clean water can clear up mild forms of impetigo; more serious cases usually need prescription antibiotic treatment.
