I had impetigo alot as a kid i once got it near my bottom and was embarrased to tell my mum and i ended up with a huge load of scabby sores all down my leg just below my knee, it was so horrible! but i did get 2 weeks off school lol poor your ds i hope he feels better soon
My ds2's legs are frequently covered in tiny scabs where he has been obsessively scratching himself. I can't see anything on his skin, but he scratches enough to make himself bleed. Would you know if this was impetigo or just dry skin?
My dd had impetigo a few weeks ago ( dd is 7 months) had it on the bottom of her back and her bum. The cream the GP prescribed did the job and it cleared up in a few days, although she still has little marks that I assume will fade in time - she didn't seem particularly bothered but it looked really sore. HTH
juicychops...you will not believe how quickly the cream will work, give it literally a day and half and you will see a noticeable difference...and stop feeling guilty, you took him to dr and now he has medicine and will be fine!
