Caption: Infant with a case of impetigo, a bacterial skin infection usually caused by Staphylococci or ocassionally Streptococci. It is common among children & babies, beginning as a red patch, which develops into small pustules that join together, eventually forming crusty yellow sores. Impetigo is especially contagious, spreading rapidly on contact & by shared towels & face cloths. It usually responds to treatment with antibiotics applied locally within seven to ten days. Impetigo of the newborn is rare today. swelling may compress adjacent vessels & cause necrosis of tissue supplied by them.
