In doctors' circles it's better known as impetigo, an infection of the skin caused by either staff or strep bacteria. We're still waiting for the results of a culture to see which one she has. In the meantime she's been on antibiotics for a few days and is S-L-O-W-L-Y regaining her vim and viggor. For the past several days the pustules on her face have increased and her energy decreased. A high fever after the erruptions was a tip off, according to the doctors.
