MedlinePlus:34 Impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria. it is usually caused by staphylococcal (staph) bacteria, but it can also be caused by streptococcal (strep) bacteria. it is most common in children between the ages of two and six. it usually starts when bacteria get into a break in the skin, such as a cut, scratch, or insect bite. symptoms start with red or pimple-like sores surrounded by red skin. these sores can be anywhere, but usually they occur on your face, arms and legs. the sores fill with pus, then break open after a few days and form a thick crust. they are often itchy, but scratching them can spread the sores. impetigo can spread by contact with sores or nasal discharge from an infected person. you can treat impetigo with antibiotics. nih: national institute of allergy and infectious diseases

MalaCards: Impetigo, also known as impetigo nos, is related to bullous impetigo and dermatitis. An important gene associated with Impetigo is DSG1 (desmoglein 1), and among its related pathways are Prostaglandin Synthesis and Regulation and Endothelin. The compounds [125i]et-1 and pd 145065 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin and eye, and related mouse phenotypes are integument and hematopoietic system.

Disease Ontology:8 Impetigo is a pyoderma consisting of three forms of skin lesions having either a thick, adherent, recurrent, dirty yellow crust with an erythematous margin (common or superficial impetigo) or lessions which are superficial, thin-walled, and bullous as found in bullous impetigo. the lesions in bullous (staphylococcal) impetigo, which are always caused by s aureus, are superficial, thin-walled, and bullous.

CDC:4 Group A Streptococcus (group A strep, GAS) bacteria can live in a person's nose and throat. The bacteria are spread through contact with droplets from an infected person's cough or sneeze. If you touch your mouth, nose, or eyes after touching something that has these droplets on it, you may become ill. If you drink from the same glass or eat from the same plate as the sick person, you could also become ill. It is also possible for group A strep bacteria to spread from contact with sores from a group A strep skin infection. More
