My Ds has had impetigo for a little over a week. He passed it on to his cousin and my DH. We've been using antibiotic cream 3 times a day, covering it with bandaids and I've been washing and disinfecting like a maniac everyday. My DH's have healed, and I thought my Ds's had just about healed too, until I noticed 3 small red spots after bath time tonight. It's never-ending! To make matters worse I have an 8 week old baby and have just noticed 3 tiny pimple looking things on my face. I'm absolutely freaking out because I don't want bub to catch it and I am feeling overwhelmed with all the cleaning. I feel like everything I touch needs to be disinfected, it's starting to trigger my anxiety now. It certainly doesn't help that I googled impetigo newborn and found out it's really dangerous for them to catch it. If he catches it, surely he's too young for the antibiotic cream? I'm so stressed right now.
Is there anything I can do to make it heal quicker? I'll be going to the doctors tomorrow. Will it ever go away?! It's a nightmare!
