General Information. Impetigo is a highly contagious bacterial skin infection, usually caused by Group A streptococcus or Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Impetigo is most common in children. However, it sometimes occurs in adults who have other itchy skin conditions, such as eczema. Other conditions that increase your risk of developing impetigo include chickenpox, reactions to insect bites, burns of the skin and diabetes.
Dr. Liana Abramova and her staff specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of impetigo and will help you understand and manage the condition effectively. Call Dermatology of Virginia in Fairfax at (703) 828-7128 and schedule your appointment today
