Treatment for Impetigo
You do not need to take impetigo seriously, as it can fade away and dry up on its own. Treatment procedure is also quite straightforward. For mild cases, gentle cleansing and removal of crusts is more than enough. You also have an option of applying the antibiotic ointment mupirocin. If your case is a bit complicated, you may need oral antibiotic medication.
Your health care provider can conduct bacterial culture tests on you as it can give an indication of whether oral therapy is required or not. Some of the antibiotics like penicillin, erythromycin and azithromycin can turn out to be quite effective.
