Bullous impetigo

Bullous impetigo

A 3-year-old female toddler presented with 5 days history of multiple small bullae superimposed on erythematous bases on the dorsal surface of the hand and nearby forearm. Some lesions have been ruptured leaving erosions; however, trails of blisters at the periphery of the lesions were seen on close examination. The child was a febrile and had no systemic symptoms. All lesions were cleared on one week course of oral cloxacillin.
