Bullous impetigo

Bullous impetigo is impetigo where bulla have formed.


Lesions of impetigo may develop bulla. The bulla may be small or large. Because the separation is just below the stratum corneum, the bulla tend to be flaccid and easily rupture.


See impetigo for treatment options. The bulla may be ruptured at the edge and drained.
