What are impetigo blisters

Impetigo, or school sores, is a contagious skin infection caused by Staphylococcus and Streptococcus. The infection shows inflamed blisters that pop, weep and form crusts. It appears as pimples, with blisters that scab. Treatment includes antibiotic cream, ointment, syrup and tablets.

A lot of blisters forms, commonly around the nose and mouth. The blisters pop and weep a yellow, sticky fluid. If the blister is rubbed off, it leaves raw areas exposed. Do not pop blisters. Any raw areas should be left exposed to the air to help them dry out.

Impetigo blisters vs other blisters

Impetigo causes small bulbous blisters filled with fluid. They like the blisters that form following a minor burn, as might occur from a match, candle or lighter, but they spread across a much wider area, more like a rash. Impetigo blisters contrast with blisters from many other skin conditions in that they are painless. Impetigo blisters burst after a certain period of time, and scab over; during this period they may be somewhat painful and sore to the touch as they imply a necessarily exposed patch of skin. The fluid within solidifies over the resulting open sore as a yellow crust. In severe forms of impetigo, like ecthyma, the blisters will ulcerate after bursting, resulting in serious pain. Impetigo blisters are not known for bleeding after they rupture and drain, but ulcerations from severe impetigo may. The rupturing of impetigo blisters is the mechanic that makes impetigo contagious.
