Impetigo - How Long Does It Last?
I have impetigo. I've been on oral antibiotics for 3 days and the area is still weeping with fluid. I keep it covered with gauze and tape, but it doesn't seem to want to quit weeping? I apply anti-itch cream to it as well and a little Aquaphor to the bandage so that it won't stick to the skin when I clean the wound. Now I have tiny (pore size) white bumps all around my nose area? Will this ever quit? How can I get rid of this? My friend is telling me that I should let the wound breathe a little, but when I do, I get the large crusted stuff around it and it is bothersome. Do I keep it covered or do I let it breathe?
