2. How Does Infantigo Develop?

Infantigo is a condition that has persisted for many centuries. The first recorded cases of modern impetigo date to somewhere in England in the 1300s. Since an understanding of bacterial infections would not develop for several hundred years, medical professionals of the time often classified infantigo as an “attack” upon the skin.

The spread of the infected skin occurred fast, especially in hot climates where the bacteria of the infection could thrive. Even now, warm environments are still the most common for encouraging the spread of bacterial infections like impetigo.
