Herbal Remedies for Impetigo and Cellulitis ( Skin Infections)


There are many bacterias that are responsible for causing skin infections and of these are streptococcus and staphylococcus aureus. Both of these bacteria are responsible for causing a skin condition known as Impetigo which is responsible for causing complications called Cellulitis. Impetigo is a highly contagious disease that involves blistering and can enter the body through minor cuts or even an insect bite. In this article, we are going to discuss Impetigo and cellulitis in detail and their treatment through herbal medicine.


Impetigo is one of the most common and highly transmissible diseases which is mostly seen in children and infants. In this skin condition, red sores appear on the skin and are also seen around the mouth, nose, legs, and feet. Sometimes these sores may burst and ooze out which will then form a crust. Whereas Cellulitis is the complication caused by impetigo which is painful and results in inflammation of the affected part. It is very tender to touch and can occur anywhere on the body and is mostly seen in the lower legs. This infection can spread through blood or lymph nodes and is mostly active in warm or hot seasons. Countries like Australia and New Zealand have extreme cases of Impetigo.
