OUR children are prone to all types of infections, especially when attending creche or school. One such type, that we don’t necessarily consider, is impetigo. This is an infection of the skin, that can happen to anybody but is most common in younger children, on exposed areas of skin. It can look quite alarming, but for the most part isn’t serious.
