What Is Impetigo?
Impetigo is a type of highly infectious skin infection, common in pre-school children. As for adults, it is more rare that they get this disease, except for people who play close contact sports. It is generally caused by the staphylococcal bacteria, but in some cases, streptococcus can be the cause.

Symptoms start with red or pimple-like sores bordered by red skin. These sores can appear anywhere, but usually they occur on a person’s face, arms and legs. The sores then fill with pus, and, after a couple of days, break open and form a thick crust. They are frequently itchy, but scratching them may spread the sores.

How Is Impetigo Spread?
Impetigo is most often spread by contact with sores or nasal discharge from an infected person.
It may clear on its own, usually taking from two to three weeks. However, it is best to treat it as  it may develop some other complications, such as scarring, cellulitis and some types of kidney inflammations and lightening or darkening of the skin.

If someone in one’s family has impetigo, you should prevent the disease from spreading. The affected areas should be washed with mild soap and running water and then covered with gauze.  The clothes, linens and towels of the person affected should be washed daily and never shared. When applying any ointments, one should wear gloves and wash his hands immediately afterwards.

  • The sore is itchy and children can scratch it, spreading the infection to nearby skin or to other parts of their own body.

  • The fluid and crusts of the sore contain the bacteria, and touching the sore or touching things that have been on the sore (clothing, dressings, towels, etc.) can spread the infection to other people.
  • The germs can also be spread from other parts of the body that do not appear to be affected, eg from a runny nose.

How long does it take to develop?

  • The sore takes about 4 to 10 days to develop after contact with fluid or crusts from a sore.
How long is it infectious?
  • A sore can be infectious as long as it is weeping. Usually it has stopped being infectious about 24 hours after treatment with an antibiotic (ointment or medicine) if used, has been started.
