what is impetigo
SURFTIP: BIRTHDAY POEMS
Impetigo, or school sores, is a highly contagious skin infection caused by the bacteria, staphylococcus and streptococcus. The infection is characterised by inflamed blisters that pop, weep and form crusts. Treatment options include antibiotic creams or ointments and syrups or tablets.
Impetigo affects school-aged children, most often during the hot and humid summer. It has a preference for skin that has already been injured by other skin problems, such as eczema or poison ivy. People playing close contact sports such as rugby, American football and wrestling are susceptible, regardless of age. Impetigo is not as common in adults.
