What is Impetigo?
Impetigo is a bacterial infection that spreads through contact. It is highly contagious and most often occurs in infants and children. Impetigo causes sores and blisters to appear on the skin, typically on the face. Fortunately, impetigo is not typically a serious disease and can quickly be resolved with treatment.
How is Impetigo Treated?
Impetigo often resolves on its own within a few weeks, although treatment can help expedite the recovery process and reduce the spread of the infection. Treatment for impetigo involves antibacterial medications such as penicillin, which fight the bacteria responsible for causing the impetigo infection and its symptoms.
How Much Does Impetigo Treatment Cost?
The cost of impetigo treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the strategies involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.

What Can I Expect from Impetigo Treatment?
After starting impetigo treatment, patients generally recover from the infection within one to two weeks. This is accelerated compared to patients who do not receive treatment for impetigo, who may take as long as three weeks to recover from impetigo while also putting others at higher risk of infection.
