Case: 10 year old boy, he is brought to the pediatrician because of a 3-day history of skin lesions. Ouch! On physical examination, he has multiple yellow, crusted erosions below the nares and on the cheeks, chin, and upper extremities. [LOOK FOR PICTUREon Google]. The rest of the examination is normal. Lesion is more superficial, involving infection of the top layers of the skin with streptococcus (strep), staphylococcus (staph), or both. The skin normally has many types of bacteria on it, but intact skin is an effective barrier that keeps bacteria from entering and growing within the body. When there is a break in the skin, bacteria can enter the body and grow there, causing inflammation and infection. Breaks in the skin may occur with insect bites, animal bites, or human bites, or other injury or trauma to the skin. You see what begins as an itchy, red sore w/ blisters, oozing and finally becomes covered with a tightly adherent crust. It tends to grow and spread. The infection is carried in the fluid that oozes from the blisters. What is the disease? What is the drug they will ask?? 1-Amoxicillin 2-Penicillin 3-Ketoconazole 4-Amphotericin B 5-Cephalexin 6-Clindamycin 7-Topical Steroids 8-Vitamin A 9-Vitamin C
