Bacterial Infections (impetigo or folliculitis)

Folliculitis

If you are experiencing breakouts in areas other than the face, chest, and upper back, it is likely that your condition is a folliculitis. This is an inflammation of the hair follicle and is often the result of a bacteria such as Staphylococcus (Staph). This is a very common condition that responds well to treatment with both topical and oral antibiotics. Our providers will also discuss techniques to avoid future eruptions.

Impetigo

Impetigo is a superficial infection of the skin caused by Staphylococcus (Staph). It is very contagious and is often seen in children. It is very common in daycare facilities and schools. It is often seen around the nose and mouth and can start with small blisters that progress to a honey-colored crust with surrounding redness. Treatments including topical and oral antibiotics.
