skin disorder, so I wanted to learn more about what it is and how it affects a person’s body.What are the symptoms of this disorder?Reddish spots on the skin, often clustered around the nose and lips, are the first sign of the most common type of impetigo. The sores quickly grow into blisters, ooze, and burst, and then form a yellowish crust. The crust is often described as honey-colored. The clusters of blisters may expand to cover more of your skin. The sores are unsightly, itchy, and occasionally painful. After the crust phase, they leave red marks that fade without leaving scars.How does the skin help in diagnosing this disorder?The skin helps doctors diagnose impetigo by its appearance.What are the treatments of this disorder?The specific topical antibiotics recommended are mupirocin and fusidic acid for 5 to 7 days.ReferencesHecht, M.
