my FIL's DW has caught infantigo (inpantigo) and we need some info about it. she doesnt have a computer, and her doctor was no help, (told her, "yeah, that's infantigo...we've seen it alot lately. here's a prescription for creme for it, apply it 2x/day for 10 days. have a nice afternoon."
),they did find out that it has spread to her bloodstream. she also has strepthroat and several cold sores at the moment, so he gave her oral antibiotics for her throat and abreva for her cold sores.
I'm doing research for her and trying to figure out what this is, since they have no computer and her Dr sucks. so far, I found that its a staph infection, it is spread through skin/skin contact, swimming pools, towels, and sheets. She just stayed at a hotel last weekend and said she didnt think the sheets were clean, and she also swam in the pool there. she also went tanning before they went to the hotel, and used one of the tanning bed's towels.
basically, we're looking for more information about how to not spread it to other ppl, and how to keep from re-infecting yourself.
any info would be greatly appreciated.
