Herbal Remedies for Impetigo
Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection often associated with Staphylococcus spp. or sometimes Streptococcus spp. The infection appears on the skin as red patches, then develops small white pustules which can join to form larger blisters. The infection is highly contagious and can occur commonly in small children and infants. This kind of infection can occur more readily in people who have a highly alkaline diet, such as a vegan diet or strict vegetarian diet.
Herbal treatment can include immune stimulants, lower bowel heat-clearing herbs and the use of external antibacterial creams, lotions, or rinses.
