Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection that is one of the most and highly contagious skin infections that mainly affects infants and children. It can occur in adults but is seen far more often in children. It usually appears as red sores on the face, especially around a child's nose and mouth, and on hands and feet. The sores burst and develop honey-colored crusts. It is caused by one of two kinds of bacteria-strep (streptococcus) or staph (staphylococcus).
