Impetigo - Staphylococcus Aureus
This superficial vesicular skin infection occurs on normal skin but most commonly on the legs in children. The lesions vary from pee-sized vesicopustules to large ringworm like lesions which progress rapidly. They most commonly appear in summer and fall in children 2-6 years of age. The local lymph nodes will be swollen and can usually begin healing with no scarring in 10 days.
