What is impetigo?
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, impetigo is a common bacterial skin infection.2 It occurs most frequently in children 2 to 5 years old, but people of any age can be affected. Impetigo causes sores that most often appear on the face, arms, and legs. These sores can turn into blisters that open and form a yellowish crust. Impetigo is highly contagious from person-to-person.
While sores may be itchy, impetigo rarely leads to serious complications. Still, effective treatment with drugs like Xepi™ can shorten how long impetigo lasts.1
Why Did Your Healthcare Professional Prescribe Xepi™?
Xepi™ is a topical antibiotic approved by the FDA to treat impetigo in adults and
children as young as two months old. While Xepi™ is safe, it is also active against
most bacteria that cause impetigo, including some bacteria that may be resistant.1
