Health Remedies - Impetigo

Product Categories

Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection. It is caused commonly by staphylococcus aureus and rarely by group A streptococcus bacteria. Impetigo may affect people of any age group, but more commonly occurs in children. It may affect skin anywhere on the body but usually attacks the area around the nose and mouth.

Impetigo often starts as a minor itch. Small red spots are formed that develop into tiny blisters that burst producing oozing, sticky, honey or golden coloured, crusty sores. The disease is highly contagious, and scratching or touching the sores is likely to spread the infection to other parts of the body as well as to other people.
