Group A streptococci can be subdivided into several serotypes, according to their M protein antigenicity. Staphylococci are transmitted primarily by hand, particularly in hospital settings.

El impétigo

In the United States there is already a formulation of mupirocin ointment without polyethylene glycol. Prevalence of Staphylococcus aureus toxins and nasal carriage in furuncles and impetigo. Various streptococci may be commensals on the skin, mucous membranes, and gastrointestinal tract.

Currently, the most frequently isolated pathogen is S. Luciana Baptista Pereira Av. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus enn in community-acquired pyoderma.

Neomycin sulfate is active mainly against aerobic Gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli, Enterobacter aerogenes, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris.

Neomycin sulfate is an antibiotic of the aminoglycoside group most commonly used in topical form. J Am Acad Dermatol.

The association is not effective against MRSA. It is active against Gram-positive cocci such as staphylococci and streptococci.

Skin bacteriology and the role of Staphylococcus aureus in infection. Scalded skin syndrome usually begins after a localized infection on the conjunctiva, nose, navel or perioral region and more rarely after pneumonia, endocarditis and arthritis. The discovery of satellite lesions, caused by self-inoculation, is frequent. There is strong evidence on the superiority, or at least the equivalence, of topical antibiotics compared to oral antibiotics in the treatment of localized impetigo.


The remainder of the roof can be seen as a collarette at the periphery and the confluence of lesions promotes the appearance of polycyclic figures Figures 2 and 3. Impetigo, a reassessment of etiology and therapy. Several decades of epidemiological studies indicate that there are some strains of group A streptococci that elicit oropharyngeal infections, but rarely cause impetigo.

Impetigo – review

The spectrum of the selected antibiotic must cover staphylococci and streptococci, both for bullous impetigo as well as for crusted impetigo. Anti-Bacterial agents; Impetigo; Staphylococcus aureus ; Streptococcus pyogenes. There are at least two different types of exfoliative ampo,loso, so that exfoliative toxin A relates to bullous impetigo and toxin B with scalded skin syndrome.

It is effective against S. Fusidic acid is highly effective against S.

Treatment of impetigo does not reduce the risk of glomerulonephritis, but it reduces nlos dissemination of nephritogenic strains in the population. It is highly effective against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes and all other species of streptococci except those of group D. Topical antibiotics are the treatment of choice for most cases of impetigo.

On the other hand their use is not discouraged, because they do not seem to increase bacterial resistance.

Each lesion measures 1 to 2 cm in diameter and grows centrifugally Figure 4.

Bullous impetigo —desquamation mios and flaccid blisters. It is particularly important in the neonatal period, starting usually after the second week of life, although it can be present at birth in case of premature zmpolloso rupture.

Photoreactions are unlikely, because the range of ultraviolet light that is absorbed by the product does not penetrate the ozone layer. Immunosuppression and tissue damage are considered ampolloo in the pathological process genesis, since the ability to produce coagulase, leukocidin and toxin appears to be the same in the carrier’s normal flora and in bacteria isolated from cutaneous lesions.


Bacteria in biofilms are 50 to times more resistant to antibiotics than bacteria in plankton organisms that have little or no ability to move. Humanized in vivo model for streptococcal impetigo.

In addition, oral antibiotics have more side effects than topical antibiotics. Ampolllso resistance and impetigo treatment trends: Bullous impetigo starts with smaller vesicles, which become flaccid blisters, measuring up to 2 cm in diameter, initially with clear content that later becomes purulent Figure 1.

Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and impetigo.

D. Bacterianas: Impétigo, foliculitis, furunculosis, hidrosa by Alessandro Flores on Prezi

The discovery of these agents in the skin of healthy children precedes the appearance of lesions in about 10 days and they can be isolated from the oropharynx between 14 and 20 days ampolloos appearing on the skin.

Effect of handwashing on child health: Schachner L, Gonzalez A. A review of its use in the management of impetigo and other uncomplicated superficial skin infections. The act of handwashing, with antiseptic soap or even regular soap, especially amongst children caretakers, severely decreased their chance of acquiring infections such as pneumonia, diarrhea and impetigo.
