Is a blister in vagina a symptom of impetigo?

Iv been to the doctors and diagnosed with impetigo on my nose, i do suffer with this quite a lot. I now have a small blister appear on my vagina. I m very cautious to keep my hands clean. Could this be impetigo also and can I use the fucidin cream the doctor gave me on my vagina?

Hi,

It seems that probably you are having impetigo off and on. At present,after nose involvement, you have lesion on genital area. It is a bacterial infection of the skin. Your immunity may be poor. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. A course of antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs may be given by your dermatologist. Take steps to improve hygiene and immunity. Apply antibiotic cream in nostril daily at night. You may use fusidine cream.

Hope this helps.
