Impetigo is a common and very contagious skin condition. Check out the answers to these common questions to learn the basics when it comes to impetigo symptoms and prevention.
Impetigo is characterized by painful red sores that burst and develop into light brownish crusty patches. The infection may clear itself within two or three weeks, but putting off treatment may put other parts of your body at risk for infection. Antibiotics or antifungal topical ointments will help with a faster recovery.
Impetigo is most common in young children, but it can happen at any age. It spreads through close contact; things like a handshake, playing contact sports with the infected, or even a sneeze can spread the infection. Impetigo is highly infectious, and it will spread quickly through schools or office environments. It is best to stay home and avoid contact with people if you have impetigo. The infection tends occur with more prevalence in warmer, humid climates. People with broken skin or diabetes are also at a higher risk for contracting impetigo.
Impetigo is particularly bothersome because the sores are usually on the face around the nose and mouth. The sores are red in color, and they quickly rupture and turn into yellowish-brown crusty patches that ooze and can be painful and itchy.
Impetigo can easily spread to other parts of the body by fingers or towels. Bullous impetigo is larger blisters that happen on the trunk of the body or diaper area of young child.
The infection is caused by a bacteria. In most cases, the infected person has come into contact with someone else who was infected. The bacteria from impetigo may also be present on the surfaces of objects or on towels and clothing.
In severe, untreated cases of impetigo, the sores may become very large and penetrate into deeper layers of the skin, making treatment more difficult. Use Terrasil Anti-Bacterial Skin Repair to treat impetigo. If symptoms persist and become increasingly uncortable, seek out medical attention.
