Thanks for writing to us.
Impetigo is basically an immune related disorder and needs a long term treatment for relief. Steroids and systemic antibiotics are mainstay of the treatment. This needs a regular monitoring and dosage regulation under the care of a dermatologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
