Thus, benzathine penicillin or those sensitive to penicillinases are not indicated in the treatment of impetigo. Toxins are the greatest virulence factor of S. Mupirocin pseudomonic acid A is the major metabolite of Pseudomonas fluorescens fermentation.

Treatment of impetigo does not reduce the risk of glomerulonephritis, wmpolloso it reduces the dissemination of nephritogenic strains in the population. Sensitized immpetigo may cross-react when exposed to other topical or systemic aminoglycosides.

Blisters are localized in bullous impetigo and disseminated in scalded skin syndrome. Group A streptococci’s pathogenicity is considerably higher than that of other groups. Currently, the most frequently isolated pathogen is S. The first-generation cephalosporins, such as cephalexin and cefadroxil, may be used, since no differences between them was found in a metaanalysis.

It is less effective against Gram-negative bacteria, but exhibits in vitro activity against Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Pasteurella multocida, Bordetella pertussisand Moraxella catarrhalis.

The isolation of streptococci of groups other than A can mean a secondary infection of preexisting lesions or colonization on cutaneous surface.

Clinical cure of impetigo with retapamulin is well defined, when compared with placebo. How to cite this article: Neomycin sulfate is an antibiotic of the aminoglycoside group most commonly used in topical form.


In studies conducted over the past three decades, there has been a resurgence of S. Staphylococci are transmitted primarily by hand, impetigk in hospital settings. Systemic absorption is minimal and the little that is absorbed ampoloso rapidly converted to inactive metabolite, hence the reason why there are not oral or parenteral formulations available.

Recent ampollsoo studies have shown a zmpolloso quantity of Pseudomonas spp. Streptococcus pneumoniae and Streptococcus pyogenes are highly resistant to neomycin, which is why the drug is usually associated with bacitracin to treat cutaneous infections.

Fusidic acid in dermatology. Mupirocin and fusidic acid are the first choice options. Common soaps or those containing antiseptic substances such as triclosan, chlorhexidine and povidone iodine, may be used.

Aminoglycosides exert their antibacterial activity by binding to the 30S ribosomal subunit and interfering with protein synthesis.

Its actions against most Gram-positive bacteria are limited. Unique approaches for the topical treatment and prevention of cutaneous infections: Streptococci can be retrieved by culture of oropharynx or skin lesion materials.

Anti-Bacterial agents; Impetigo; Staphylococcus aureus ; Streptococcus impstigo.

As side effects, contact dermatitis and more rarely, anaphylactic shock have been reported. It is less effective in traumatic lesions and those with abscess formation usually caused by anaerobic bacteria and MRSA. Crusted impetigo—vesicles, honey-colored and hematic crusts.

El impétigo (para Adolecentes)

These are germs with invasive potential, which can reach several tissular planes, such as the epidermis impetigodermis ecthyma or deeper subcutaneous tissue cellulite. One should take into account the possibility of resistance to S.

Clinical and molecular characteristics of invasive and noninvasive skin and soft tissue infections caused by group Ampokloso streptococcus. Bacterial skin infections in children: Immpetigo streptococci may be commensals on the skin, mucous membranes, and gastrointestinal tract. Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus: Dosage of antistreptolysin O may not be useful for cutaneous infections since its titles do not increase satisfactorily.


In Brazil it is available as an ointment and in combination with neomycin. The association is not effective against MRSA.

It is the result of Streptomyces fradiae fermentation. Its antibacterial action occurs through the inhibition of protein synthesis by binding selectively to bacterial ribosomes. Therefore, concern about MRSA in community-acquired infections, should be greater in the presence of furuncles and abscesses and smaller in impetigo. Staphylococci that possess PVL gene cause suppurative cutaneous infections such as abscesses and furuncles.

Retapamulin is a semi-synthetic agent derived from an e mushroom called Clitopilusscyphoides. The path would be from the nares or perineum to imoetigo skin, and later to injured skin. It is listed in category B for use in pregnant and lactating impeetigo. The act of handwashing, with antiseptic soap or even regular soap, especially amongst children caretakers, severely decreased their chance of acquiring infections such as pneumonia, diarrhea and impetigo.

It is a polypeptide formed by multiple components A, B and C. Bullous impetigo and scalded skin syndrome, caused by staphylococcal toxins and toxic shock syndrome, caused by staphylococcal or streptococcal toxins are examples of toxin-mediated diseases.
