Impetigo-The skin

What is impetigo?

Impetigo is a skin infections which is contagious. Impetigo is spread around human beings quickly. It can transform into yellow crusty sores. It is also a rash that affects the epidermis. It can spread human contact, or germs from a thing that the infected person has touched. It is most contagious when the rash is oozing. It starts as blisters.

Who are most infected?

Childrens and little babies are mostly infected.  I think that childrens and babies mostly get infected with Impetigo because they elders, make contact with the little ones more often.

How we identify impetigo?

Impetigo appears mostly on the face, arms and legs, sometimes on the elbows. You will find, on someone elses face, there would be pus coming out of the rash or, it is very close to the nose. Impetigo is easily spotted and easily given to another.
