If i understand you correctly, you have been diagnosed with impetigo
, put on medications & are not following them & DEVELOPED this oozing et al & are worried as to the cause ?!!!
Please go across to a skin specialist nearest you & sort this out. It appears to be an infected eczema
& secondary impetiginization from your description that will require systemic/oral antibiotics
& you are best off seeing someone in person as it will require a prescription.
Go ahead & use the medications you have been prescribed in the interim. That is why they have been 'prescribed'...to get you better..do not use the wait & watch approach with an infection!
You may feel free to use our 'ask-a-doctor' portal in the interim if you so choose to & upload clear digital photographs of your problem & ask specifically for me.
Cheers & wish you Good Luck & soon a clear face!
