Impetigo — get treatment to clear it quickly

Impetigo is a highly contagious skin infection that is common in children although adults can also catch it. Blisters or weeping sores appear around the face or hands and then crust over with yellowish scabs. The sores might be painful or itchy.

Although impetigo is unpleasant and very contagious, it’s not a serious condition and can improve on its own over time. With treatment, impetigo can be cleared up more quickly.

We’ll need to see three photos of your skin and check that treatment is suitable for you.
