Staphylococci are transmitted primarily by hand, particularly in hospital settings. Bullous impetigo is almost universally caused by a single organism, S. There are at least two different types of exfoliative toxins, so that exfoliative toxin A relates to bullous impetigo and toxin B with scalded skin syndrome.

Skin bacteriology and the amplloso of Staphylococcus aureus in infection. Recent genetic studies have shown a large quantity of Pseudomonas spp. Resistance, in vitro and in vivo, to fusidic acid has been verified but at low levels. Fusidic acid in skin and soft tissue infections. Mupirocin and fusidic acid are the first choice options.

Clinical and molecular characteristics of invasive and noninvasive skin and soft tissue infections caused by group A streptococcus. It is listed in category B for use in pregnant and lactating women.


It is active against Gram-positive cocci such as staphylococci and streptococci. Most species of Pseudomonas aeruginosa are resistant to it.

The commercially available formulation is a mixture of neomycin B and C, while framycetin, used in Canada and several European countries, is composed of pure neomycin B. Neomycin sulfate is active niso against aerobic Gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli, Enterobacter aerogenes, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris.

Bacteria in biofilms are 50 to times more resistant to antibiotics than bacteria in plankton organisms that have little or no ability to move. It is also effective, to a lesser extent, against Streptococcus and Propionibacterium acnes. Skin microflora and bacterial infections of the skin. In the United States there is already a formulation of mupirocin ointment without polyethylene glycol.

Most Gram-negative microorganisms and yeasts are resistant to it. Its actions against most Gram-positive bacteria are limited. Mupirocin’s bactericidal activity is increased by the impetiigo pH on the skin.

Bullous impetigo —desquamation collarette and flaccid blisters.

It is available in Brazil in the form of ointment, alone or in combination with bacitracin. Sensitized patients may cross-react when exposed to other topical or systemic aminoglycosides. Topical agents for impetigo jmpetigo are reviewed.

It is not active against bacteria of the normal cutaneous flora and therefore does not alter the skin’s natural defense. Staphylococcal infections are present in all age groups.

Streptococci can be retrieved by culture of oropharynx or skin lesion materials. Toxin-mediated streptococcal and staphylococcal disease. 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. Fusidic acid in dermatology. Bullous impetigo starts with smaller vesicles, which become flaccid blisters, measuring up to 2 cm in diameter, initially with clear content that later becomes purulent Figure 1.

How to cite this article. Impetigo is a common cutaneous infection that is especially prevalent in children. Fusidic acid is highly effective against S. Aminoglycosides exert their antibacterial activity by binding to the 30S ribosomal subunit and interfering with protein synthesis. It is effective against S. ampokloso

Crusted impetigo located on the arm.
