Anyone ever have impetigo?

I think Annika and my husband have impetigo, the doctor can't see them until tomorrow. Does anyone have experience with this?

    Annika got a sore on her forehead a few days ago and we didn't know how she got it. It kind of looked like a rug burn and it was all crusty. Then my husband got some on his face and it is getting worse. Annika got a second spot too so now we know it isn't a boo boo. I consulted doctor google and found impetigo. I have never had it before and neither have my kids so I am not 100% sure. I wish the doctor could see us sooner but they are booked.

      Impetigo, one of the most common skin infections among kids, usually produces blisters or sores on the face, neck, hands, and diaper area. This contagious superficial skin infection is generally caused by one of two bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes (also called group A streptococcus, which also causes strep throat). Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is also becoming an important cause of impetigo. I knew someone who had it.

        My husband and daughter are leaving for the doctor right now. We are pretty sure they have impetigo. I am hoping the rest of us don't catch it.

          Doctor said it is impetigo and prescribed an antibiotic cream.
