As soon as you notice a reddish, weeping, or blistery rash, call your doctor. Treating the rash with antibiotics will help the infection go away faster and also will prevent spread to others. The itching that often comes with the impetigo rash sometimes provides an added incentive to get the rash treated quickly.
Emergency treatment is rarely needed.
You can prevent impetigo by avoiding contact with others who have impetigo. It also helps if you keep your skin clean, dry, and avoid scraping or injuring your skin.
