In the impetigo treatment review performed by the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, the authors report a relative lack of data on the efficacy of topical antiseptics.

It is less effective in traumatic lesions and those with abscess formation usually caused by anaerobic bacteria and MRSA. Mupirocin pseudomonic acid A is the major metabolite of Pseudomonas fluorescens fermentation. Impetiho impetigo—vesicles, honey-colored and hematic crusts. It works by interfering with bacterial cell wall formation.

Although we have not found imperigo Brazilian studies conducted in recent decades regarding the epidemiology of impetigo, these data are corroborated in studies conducted in different countries, such as United States, Israel, Thailand, Guyana, India, Chile, and Japan.

Rather, glomerulonephritis may result from streptococcal cutaneous or upper respiratory tract infections, but the skin is the main previous site. 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. Rheumatic fever can be a complication of streptococcal pharyngitis or tonsillitis, but it does not occur after skin infections.

Neomycin sulfate is active mainly against aerobic Gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli, Enterobacter aerogenes, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris. Br J Gen Pract. Treatment of impetigo does not reduce the risk of glomerulonephritis, but it reduces nioos dissemination of nephritogenic strains in the population.
