Impetigo is a kind of skin infection that affects skin in any part of the body, it commonly occurs in the areas around the nose and mouth.
This usually affects childrens (preschool) especially in summer months. Impetigo caused by staph bacteria is characterized by large blisters containing fluid that is clear at first that turns cloudy later on. Blisters may burst, ooze fluid and can develop a honey colored crust. I has the tendency to itch and can be spread by scratching.
