Impetigo is one of the most contagious skin infections that affects young children and in rare cases, adults. This rash can usually be seen on the face, neck and hands of children between the ages of 2 and 6 and in the groin area in the case of diaper wearing infants. This infection is not life threatening and is usually resolved within two or three weeks.
Homeopathy can be easily used to treat this condition. Homeopathy is a holistic form of treatment that has negligible side effects. This makes it an ideal form of treatment for infections that affect children. However, before any form of homeopathic medication can be prescribed for impetigo, it is essential to understand the causes and symptoms of this disease.
This condition can be triggered by the effects of two types of bacteria; bacteria-strep (streptococcus pyogenes) and staph (staphylococcus aureus). This is important to note as the form of treatment depends on the type of bacteria that triggered the condition. In most cases, bacteria infects the body through an open wound or irritated skin that has been affected by eczema, insect bites etc. Bacteria can also affect the skin under a child’s nose that is raw due to a cold or allergies. However, sometimes, it can also affect healthy skin.
The infection can spread from one child to another through close contact or by sharing clothing, towels, sheets, toys etc. This puts children attending day care at a high risk of contacting this infection. Other factors that can raise the risk of suffering from impetigo are diabetes, poor hygiene, dermatitis, warm and humid weather and low immunity. Children who participate in contact sports such as football are also at a high risk of contacting this infection.
Open sores are the most noticeable symptom of this condition. These sores begin as small red spots on the skin that may be as small as a pimple or as large as a coin. With time, they gradually develop into fluid filled blisters. These blisters either burst on their own to form open sores or are created when children scratch them. Once open, these sores ooze for a few days before forming a yellowish crust.
Though these sores are not painful, they are very itchy. By scratching the sores, they can spread form one part of the body to another and increase in size. The longer this disease is left untreated, the higher the chances of scarring and hence it is essential to consult a doctor as soon as you start noticing any of its symptoms.

The skin is a multifunctional organ of great importance that promotes, through skin barrier function, mechanical protection, thermoregulation, immune surveillance, and prevents the loss of bodily fluids. Skin is a complex tissue derived from both embryonic mesoderm and ectoderm. The development and growth of human fetal skin is marked by a series of sequential, patterned steps that are tightly controlled and dependent on a variety of interactions of the numerous cell types that compose the organ. It was previously thought that the skin barrier function reached its maturity at about 34 weeks of gestation.
However, recent data show that it continues to develop until 12 months after birth. The skin of the neonate is subjected to a gradual process of adaptation to the extra uterine environment, and special care becomes necessary during this period. The skin is more vulnerable in the pediatric population, especially with regard to the differing sensitivities between adults and children.
Skincare Products For Children-
Due to the characteristics of the skin of newborn babies, infants, and children, cosmetic products intended for their hygiene and protection require special attention in their formulation. Their skin care products should seek to preserve skin integrity, prevent toxicity and to avoid exposure of the skin to harmful chemical agents. These differences and issues in the skin types have inspired people to come up with different skin and hair products for adults and kids in the market.
So here are a few dos and don’ts to keep in mind before buying the skin care products for children.
- Products which are free of artificial fragrances, animal fat, parabens, harmful chemicals, petroleum derivatives, colour additives and alcohol are safe for kids.
- Use fragrance-free bath oil or a mild, gentle non-soap cleanser if required while bathing your infant in warm water every day. Avoid bubble bath as it removes natural oils from the child's skin.
- Avoid antibacterial and perfumed soaps as they may irritate the baby's thin and fragile skin.
- Apply a nappy rash cream - A thick layer of aqueous creams should be applied at every nappy change.
- Use a good quality moisturizer, purchased from a pharmacy, such as aqueous cream immediately after the bath to keep the skin hydrated. Thicker creams and ointments are more effective than lotions. If your baby's skin usually seems dry, a moisturizer may need to be applied two to four times a day. Make sure there are no hidden carcinogens, estrogens or caustic detergents in the moisturizer. If you find it difficult to choose the right moisturizer, prepare a homemade natural skin moisturizer for your toddler.
Always consult a pediatric dermatologist if your child’s skin is easily irritated and is less resistant to bacteria and harmful substances in the environment.
