Impetigo

A common and contagious skin infection primarily affecting young children is caused by bacteria.

What is it?

Impetigo is an infectious skin ailment that is common among young children, although individuals of all ages can be affected. This condition is distinguished by red sores or blisters that can emerge on any part of the body, often beginning on the arms, legs and face. Impetigo blisters frequently burst, leak for several days then form a yellowish-brown crust. Despite being itchy and uncomfortable, it seldom presents serious health threats.

How is it treated?

Addressing impetigo swiftly is crucial to halt its spread to others. A board-certified dermatologist is the appropriate specialist to accurately diagnose and effectively treat this infection. Typically, they will recommend a topical antibiotic lotion, which should be applied to the infected area as instructed. Oral antibiotics may be provided for more severe cases of impetigo. Dermatology Partners, serving the communities of Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton and Strongsville, Ohio, can offer advice on symptom management, strategies to prevent impetigo from spreading within homes, and methods to avoid recurrence. Consulting professional dermatological assistance is essential to handling impetigo efficiently.
