Impetigo is a superficial bacterial infection that presents with honey crusts or bullae.
Good hygiene can prevent impetigo and therefore is not surprising that many cases of impetigo will be seen in countries that lack access to soap and clean water. Impetigo is often secondary to other skin diseases such as scabies or fungal infections that create breaks in the skin barrier function.
