I had impetigo about a 8 weeks ago and thought it had gone away for good (also had a very mild dose of it a month previous) but it is back.
This is making me really depressed and self conscious, I know it's cosmetic but I don't want to leave the house. I feel disgusting!!
I'm a clean person. I'm 21yr old student living in england and I don't understand it.
I went to the doctors earlier today and he was pretty useless. As I was self conscious I put makeup on my face (as I wouldn't have left the house otherwise) and he had a go at me. He looked at the marks on my body and said it's insect or animal bites.
But as the day has gone on it's got worse and has spread to my chest, arm and neck and scalp :cry:
I think it must be impetigo, it really itches and I feel ugly. He's given me Flucloxacillin antibiotics. I had these last time but it the impetigo was not as bad. Will these work and how long will it take to heal
