this is dr gupta
by the history this seem to be case of impetigo contagiosa which is spreading around the mouth . this did not need coverage but this need some oral antiobiotic ( amoxy-clave) along with topical antiobiotic . and before this you have to go for smear test of the lesion . and also culture of scrap .
