Impetigo


Contagious superficial infection of the skin, most common in infants and children. It is seen in two forms: A bullous impetigo associated with staphylococci, and a vesiculopustular form with resulting thick crusted lesions due to beta haemolytic streptococci, staphylococci, or both. Lesions may involve any body surface, but occur most frequently on the face, neck, and extremities.
