Impetigo

Natural Homemade Skin Care Dermatology: Visual Recognition and Case Reviews

Impetigo is a bacterial condition that affects the surface of the skin.

(Recall that the skin is also known as the "integument", or "integumentary system".)

The two forms of impetigo are:

  • Nonbullous impetigo is caused by Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus species, or both organisms. This mainly affects young children and is highly contagious with yellowish-brown crusting.
  • Bullous impetigo is caused by Staphylococcus aureus. This is characterized by blisters, is less contagious than the nonbullous form, and occurs at any age.
