Impetigo. Close-up of an impetigo lesion on a child's cheek. Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection 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 blisters (bullae). Impetigo is highly contagious, spreading rapidly on contact, and by shared towels and face cloths. It usually responds to treatment with topical antibiotics within seven to ten days.
