Impetigo News and Research

RSS
Impetigo (sometimes impetaigo) is a superficial bacterial skin infection most common among pre-school children. People who play close contact sports such as rugby, American football and wrestling are also susceptible, regardless of age. Impetigo is not as common in adults. It is also highly contagious. The name derives from the Latin ''impetere'' ("assail"). It is also known as school sores.
