Mupirocin and fusidic acid are the first choice options.

Removal of amino-terminal extracellular domains of desmoglein 1 by staphylococcal exfoliative toxin is sufficient to initiate epidermal blister formation. MRSA resistance to mupirocin has already been described. Bacterial resistance and impetigo treatment trends: Being a bacteriostatic drug, bacterial eradication may not occur, even after the clinical cure of impetigo. Bullous impetigo in the genital area – intact and flaccid pustules, exulcerations and scaling in collarette.

One should take into account the possibility of resistance to S. The amoxicillin associated with clavulanic acid is the combination of one penicillin with a beta-lactamase inhibiting agent clavulanic acidthus enabling adequate coverage for streptococci and staphylococci. It is not active against bacteria of the normal cutaneous flora and therefore does not alter the skin’s natural defense.

It is highly effective against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes and all other species of streptococci except those of group D. Bacterial infections of the skin.


On the other hand, there is a distinct group of strains that cause cutaneous infection but that do not affect the throat. Aminoglycosides exert their antibacterial activity by binding to the 30S ribosomal ampollowo and interfering with protein synthesis. Cases of infections caused by MRSA in the community were reported in the 80’s, but the importance of this group has increased significantly in recent years.

A crucial factor to the infection virulence is the ability of these bacteria to produce circulating toxins that act as superantigens. The act of impetito, with antiseptic soap or even regular soap, especially amongst children caretakers, severely decreased their chance of acquiring infections such as pneumonia, diarrhea and impetigo.

Impétigo (para Padres)

Toxin-mediated streptococcal and staphylococcal disease. Streptococcus pneumoniae and Streptococcus pyogenes are highly resistant to neomycin, which is why the drug is usually associated with bacitracin to treat cutaneous infections.

Fusidic acid in skin and soft tissue infections. Impetigo is a common cutaneous infection that is especially prevalent ampol,oso children.

New horizons for cutaneous microbiology: On the other hand their use is not discouraged, because they do not seem to increase bacterial resistance. Blisters are localized in bullous impetigo and disseminated in scalded skin syndrome. The discovery of satellite lesions, caused nioa self-inoculation, is frequent.


Bullous impetigo and scalded skin syndrome, caused by staphylococcal toxins and toxic shock syndrome, caused by staphylococcal or streptococcal toxins are examples of toxin-mediated impetio. Diagnosis and treatment of impetigo.

For skin diseases, serological anti-DNA-ase B test, useful to demonstrate a previous streptococcal infection group A streptococcuscan be performed. It can eradicate S.

Rather, glomerulonephritis may result from streptococcal cutaneous or upper respiratory tract infections, but the skin is the main previous site. It is listed in category B for use in pregnant and lactating women. Group A streptococci’s pathogenicity is considerably higher than that of ampolloao groups.

Bullous impetigo occurs most commonly in intertriginous regions such as the diaper area, axillae and neck, although impetibo cutaneous area can be affected, including palms and soles Figures 1 and 2.

Gram-negative bacilli are resistant to fusidic acid. Sensitized patients may cross-react when exposed to other topical or systemic aminoglycosides. Clinical and molecular characteristics of invasive and noninvasive skin and soft tissue infections caused by group A streptococcus.

Staphylococcal infections are present in all age groups. The roof of the blister ruptures easily, revealing an erythematous, shiny and wet basis.

Clinical cure of impetigo with retapamulin is well impetiggo, when compared with placebo.
