Impetigo Impetigo

Overview

This disease (Impetigo) is a common and contagious skin infectionamong children living in London. More than 50% of people with impetigo, including children, athletes, and footballers often contract this skin infection through physical contact with an infected person. However, you can also get infected by using objects that are infected with the bacteria causing this skin infection.

The infection is usually known to start from minor cuts, insect bites, or rashes like eczema. Regardless, the infection can also occur on healthy skin.

When impetigo affects healthy skin, they are often referred to as primary impetigo, while secondary impetigo occurs when it infects a broken skin. It is quite important to make this distinction, especially when carrying out treatment on the infected skin. Although they are highly contagious, it is rarely serious as it easily clears off on its own in a few weeks or a month

Nevertheless, treatment is highly recommended to avoid other complications and infections. Without timely treatments, the infections can easily develop new sores or blisters. It can also go deeper into the skin, which of course can be dangerous. Timelyand adequate treatment can also help reduce your chances of passing this infection to others.

OUR PATIENTS REVIEW

Quotes

ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn’t help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
