Impetigo - School sores

impetigo on children

Impetigo isone of the most common skin infections among kids. School sores is most commonly spread by close contact: children in daycare, kids at school, a child doing sport like rugby or wrestling.

Impetigo usually affects preschool and school-age children. A child may be more likely to develop impetigo if the skin has already been irritated by other skin problems, such as eczema, acne, poison ivy, and insect bites.

Learn your children with impetigo good hygiene, washing hands, and avoid scratching.

You should take precautions to avoid spreading impetigo to other children, particularly newborn babies. See impetigo prevention.

Due to environments, such as schools and nurseries, where impetigo can easily be spread school sores is more often with children than adults. In the UK, around 3% of children up to four years old, and 2% of children who are between five to 14 years old get impetigo each year. Impetigo can sometimes affect adults, for example, when people are living in a confined environment, such as an army barracks.

Impetigo is thought to be more common in children because their immune system has not yet fully developed. The immune system produces antibodies that help to fight infection. However, as the immune system of a young child is underdeveloped, it does not produce enough antibodies to effectively fight off infection, making them more vulnerable to infections such as impetigo.
