    Default Impetigo!

    Ok ladies, I need your advice. Does this looks like impetigo to you? I'll be taking him to the doctors in the morning but just thought I'd see what you all think first?

    He has had a cold for the last week but this has come up today. It's not bothering him but a few more spots have developed since the photo was taken.

    TIA

    This has been my nightmare for the past month!! Gah- horrible things! But I'm not sure about the ones in your photo.... They don't look scabby or blistery yet. Definitely a trip to the doctor.

    Thanks @TreeGirl. He cousin (who he hasn't seen in about 2 weeks) has also got the same thing, started today too but she has also had a cold (we have all got it too). Part of me thinks it's from a virus but then I think it could just be a mild case. Guess I'll see what the doctor says tomorrow.
