Went to the doctors today about something unrelated and ended up coming out with a prescription for that and one for impetigo ( which I didn't know I had) its on my face around my mouth and is something I get often ( every 6 weeks or so) been to the doctor about it before but always been told its spots. Anyone else get this?

Are you certain that it is impetigo? Is it a collection of itchy, fluid filled little spots, which leave a red mark?

Google perioral dermatitis.

I have had this, the GPdidnt know what it was.

A longer term course of Lymecylcine clears it up.
