Bullous impetigo rash on patient's cheek. This is a bacterial skin infection caused by staphylococcus aureus. It is common among children and babies, beginning as a red patch, which develops into small pustules that join together, eventually forming crusty yellow blisters (bullae). Impetigo is especially contagious, spreading rapidly on contact and by shared towels and face cloths.
