Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University, Thailand.


We found that mixed organisms of S.aureus and GABHS were the most common cause of impetigo in children in our study; that, of the two regimens evaluated, cloxacillin is the most effective treatment; that penicillin is equally effective in cases of mild to moderate forms and may be preferred on the basis of cost-effectiveness.
