Your child may have been exposed to Impetigo.
What is impetigo?
Impetigo is a very common yet contagious skin infection caused by bacteria. Found most often on the face, impetigo may be anywhere on the body.
Please watch your child for the following symptoms. If your child has the symptoms below, please call your child’s healthcare provider for guidance.
Common Signs and Symptoms: Symptoms usually appear 4 - 10 days after exposure.
How does a person get impetigo?
The bacteria which cause impetigo are present in the sores and nasal secretions of an infected person. Someone can get impetigo either from direct contact with a person with impetigo or from touching something contaminated with the bacteria.
If you suspect impetigo, your student needs to be seen by your healthcare provider. If your student is diagnosed with impetigo, he/she should not return to school until under treatment for 24 hours and skin lesions are dry.
A person with impetigo is contagious until treated with oral antibiotics or topical antibiotic cream for 24 hours, or until the skin lesions are dry.
