    Default Impetigo (school sores) in 4 month old

    My 4.5 month old had picked up school sores from her 2.5 year old sister 😞. She has about 5 distinct ones, with crusts forming wishing the last 24 hours, on her torso, underarm area. I think more are coming. We have just started her on oral ABs with instructions to go to hospital if they spread. I just wanted some feedback from Bub hub land as to how serious this might be in such a young baby. No temperature', but she also has a separate chest cold grrr. Has anyone else's young baby had school sores? What did you do?
