    What is Impetigo

    Impetigo is a skin infection that mainly affects infants and children. It is contagious and can be spread to others through close contact or by sharing towels, sheets, clothing, toys, or other items.

    Symptoms of Impetigo

    • The sores begin as small red spots, and then change to blisters that eventually break open.
    • Itching
    • Painless, fluid-filled blisters
    • In the more serious form, painful fluid- or pus-filled sores

    Causes of Impetigo

    • Two types of bacteria cause impetigo — Staphylococcus aureus (staph), and Streptococcus pyogenes (strep)
    • Impetigo is usually the result of injury to the skin
    • Close contact with the sores of someone who’s infected
    • By sharing towels, sheets, clothing, toys, or other items

    • Being age 2 to 6
    • Direct contact with an adult or child who has impetigo
    • Contaminated towels, bedding or clothing
    • Injury to the skin
    • Weak immune system

    Diagnosis of Impetigo

    Diagnose of impetigo is done just by looking at your or your child’s skin. A culture may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis. During this test, a small piece of a sore is removed and sends to a lab in order to identify the bacteria. If you or your child have other signs of illness, your doctor may order blood or urine tests.

    Precautions & Prevention of Impetigo

    • Use mild soap and water to clean your affected skin
    • Take baths or showers regularly
    • Injured areas should be kept clean and covered to prevent infection
    • Wear gloves when applying any antibiotic ointment
    • Keep your child home until your doctor says he or she isn’t contagious
    • Cut an infected child’s nails short to prevent damage from scratching
