Impetigo

Impetigo is characterized by blisters and honey-colored crusts on the skin.

It can affect the skin anywhere on the body, but it usually appears around the nose and mouth.

Impetigo is contagious. It can be transmitted from one part of the body to another or by direct contact with the clothes, towels, bed linen, etc. of an infected person.

How to Prevent Impetigo?

  • You can help prevent impetigo by following good hygiene practices when caring for your child's skin.
  • When the skin barrier is broken, the disease can spread faster. It is therefore important to treat cuts, abrasions, insect bites, eczema areas and rashes early and appropriately.
  • It is appropriate to keep your child's nails short.

Treatment in Impetigo

  • In mild cases, a topical antibiotic cream can be used. However, if the number of lesions is high and there are lesions in different parts of the body, oral antibiotics should be added to the treatment.
  • It is appropriate to gently wash infected skin areas daily with antibacterial soap.
  • It is appropriate to cover the wound areas with gauze to prevent the impetigo from spreading to other parts of the body.
