Impetigo

Impetigo is a bacterial infection that involves the superficial skin. The most common presentation is yellowish crusts on arms, or legs. Less there may be large blisters which affect the groin or armpits; the lesions may be itchy. Fever is uncommon, it is due to either Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes. Risk factors include attending day care, poor nutrition, diabetes mellitus, contact sports, breaks in the skin such as from mosquito bites, scabies, or herpes. With contact it can spread around or between people. Diagnosis is based on the symptoms and appearance. Prevention is by hand washing, avoiding people who are infected, cleaning injuries. Treatment is with antibiotic creams such as mupirocin or fusidic acid. Antibiotics by mouth, such as cephalexin, may be used. Antibiotic-resistant forms have been found. Impetigo affected about 140 million people in 2010, it is most common in young children. In some places the condition is known as "school sores". Without treatment people get better within three weeks.

Complications may include poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis. The name is from the Latin impetere meaning "attack"; this most common form of impetigo called nonbullous impetigo, most begins as a red sore near the nose or mouth which soon breaks, leaking pus or fluid, forms a honey-colored scab, followed by a red mark which heals without leaving a scar. Sores are not painful. Lymph nodes in the affected area may be swollen. Touching or scratching the sores may spread the infection to other parts of the body. Skin ulcers with redness and scarring may result from scratching or abrading the skin. Bullous impetigo seen in children younger than 2 years, involves painless, fluid-filled blisters on the arms and trunk, surrounded by red and itchy skin; the blisters may be small. After they break, they form yellow scabs. Ecthyma, the nonbullous form of impetigo, produces painful fluid- or pus-filled sores with redness of skin on the arms and legs, become ulcers that penetrate deeper into the dermis. After they break open, they form hard, gray-yellow scabs, which sometimes leave scars.

Ecthyma may be accompanied by swollen lymph nodes in the affected area. Impetigo is caused by Staphylococcus aureus, sometimes by Streptococcus pyogenes. Both bullous and nonbullous are caused by S. aureus, with Streptococcus commonly being involved in the nonbullous form. Impetigo is more to infect children ages 2–5 those that attend school or day care. 70 % of cases are the nonbullous 30 % are the bullous form. Other factors can increase the risk of contracting impetigo such as diabetes mellitus, immunodeficiency disorders, other irritable skin disorders. Impetigo occurs more among people who live in warm climates; the infection is spread by direct contact with nasal carriers. The incubation period is 1 -- 3 days after exposure to 4 -- 10 days for Staphylococcus. Dried streptococci in the air are not infectious to intact skin. Scratching may spread the lesions. Impetigo is diagnosed based on its appearance, it appears as honey-colored scabs formed from dried serum, is found on the arms, legs, or face.

If a visual diagnosis is unclear a culture may be done to test for resistant bacteria. Other conditions that can result in symptoms similar to the common form include contact dermatitis, herpes simplex virus, discoid lupus, scabies. Other conditions that can result in symptoms similar to the blistering form include other bullous skin diseases and necrotizing fasciitis. To prevent the spread of impetigo the skin and any open wounds should be kept clean and covered. Care should be taken to keep fluids from an infected person away from the skin of a non-infected person. Washing hands and affected areas will lower the likelihood of contact with infected fluids. Scratching can spread the sores. Infected people should eliminate sharing of clothing or linens. Children with impetigo can return to school 24 hours after starting antibiotic therapy as long as their draining lesions are covered. Antibiotics, either as a cream or by mouth, are prescribed. Mild cases may be treated with mupirocin ointments. In 95% of cases, a single 7-day antibiotic course results in resolution in children.

It has been advocated that topical antiseptics are not nearly as efficient as topical antibiotics, therefore should not be used as a replacement. More severe cases require oral antibiotics, such as flucloxacillin, or erythromycin. Alternatively, amoxicillin combined with clavulanate potassium and many others may be used as an antibiotic treatment. Alternatives for people who are allergic to penicillin or infections with methicillin-resistant Staphococcus aureus include doxycycline and trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole, although doxycycline should not be used in children under the age of eight years old due to the risk of drug-induced tooth discolouration; when streptococci alone are the cause, penicillin is the drug of choice. When the condition presents with ulcers, valacyclovir, an antiviral, may be given in case a viral infection is causing the ulcer. There is not enough evidence to recommend alternative medicine such as honey. Without treatment, individuals with impetigo get better within three weeks.

Complications may include cellulitis or poststre
