Patient replied :

Juat if I can get some information on what it is I have itnthis 6 months and no dryskin cream I have tried has worked

Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring. I would be pleased to answer your question.

From your photo it looks like a severe impetigo with eczematization.

This can be treated with antibiotic and steroid combination application. Over the counter available products include neosporin and cortaid cream which can be mixed and applied.

Hope this answers your query, please feel free to discuss further if you have queries.

Thanks and take care.

Patient replied :

Can this be contagious and can I get the antibiotic over the counter with out perscription


Thanks for your reply.

A direct contact with the lesions can be contagious.

The creams are available over the counter. However they are mild creams. In case you do not get relief with them within a week, it would be advisable to get a prescription for mupirocin cream which will be more effective.
