my youngest developed impetigo on his hairline at forehead at the start of the year and now my oldest has impetigo on scalp at back of head. The problem for my youngest started several months ago around Februrary and has been cycling. He will get well with 7 days of Keflex and then be well for 4 to 5 days off the keflex and then the impetigo is back. He has a huge yeast issue now so that has thrown gasoline into the fire. The impetigo is clearly a trigger for Pandas he will get intrusive thoughts and cry and scream with terror. Never a friggin break from strep. First years of strep throat then T&A put an end to that and now impetigo is cycling. My oldest had been in remission since January and antibiotic free he is now ticing and back on penn vk and omnicef. he is doing well enough to function though he pulls out of it quick with abx alone. My youngest is relapsing to scary places though. I really need to eradicate this impetigo cycle from his body. I started Diflucan and the herx is too much. had to pull back on the dosage. he has not been on Difilucan since February. I really don't like to use Diflucan but nystatin was not doing enough. If he would eat even a GFCF cookie he would start crying. Ibuprofen and alka seltzer gold are both helping with the herx and provide relief for him. My husband and I are fine no rashes or symptoms of strep. Its just them. I keep a super clean house and use Clorox on all surfaces that strep or staph can live on. My kids have good hygiene daily. Something to note is they both are experiencing stomach pain with the impetigo. Thinking about trying goldenseal. Anyone else have problems with impetigo?
