Impetigo is the most common infection. It is particularly common on children’s faces, but can occur anywhere. It is characterized by an often weepy, crusted rash that spreads over a number of days. This most commonly is from staph aureus. While milder forms of this can be treated with topical agents such as mupirocin, most infections are best treated with an oral antibiotic that targets staph aureus.* A red, pussy eruption will often take the form of pimples on the trunk can be seen in patients who have recently been in a hot tub. This is commonly referred to as hot tub dermatitis and results from pseudomonas aeruginosa. It is best treated with a gentle cleanse and might require an oral antibiotic.*
