Impetigo

Impetigo is a skin infection. Although not usually serious, it is very contagious so it’s recommended you get it treated. It often gets better in 7 to 10 days if you get treatment. Anyone can get impetigo, but it’s very common in young children.

Impetigo creates sores or blisters which burst and can be painful. We have a range of topical creams to treat impetigo.

 

Causes

Impetigo can be caused by bacteria that enter through a break in the skin such as a cut or insect bite or can enter through already broken skin in those suffering from eczema or psoriasis.

Treatments

Impetigo can usually clear up within three weeks if left untreated. However, treatment is recommended as it can help to reduce the length of infection and lower the risk of spreading it onto others.

At Pharmacy Online, we can provide treatment for impetigo. Get in contact today to discuss treatment options.

Symptoms

Impetigo starts with red sores or blisters that look like small cold sores, which burst to leave crusty brown-gold patches which can be itchy and painful. These sores can get bigger and spread to other areas of the body if left untreated.
