The term impetigo refers to any of a number of skin diseases characterized by the eruption of pustules, especially those which are contagious and caused by staphylococcus bacteria.

Vitamin A helps fight infections, and is recommended for the treatment of various skin problems (acne, impetigo, psoriasis, etc.).

Good sources of Vitamin A in the form of retinol are:

– fish and animal liver

– fat from dairy products

– egg yolk

Good sources of Vitamin A in the form of carotene are:

– carrots, spinach, tomatoes, lettuce and green leafy vegetables in general

– asparagus

– melon, apricots, oranges

Note that dried fruits contain more Vitamin A than fresh fruit.

Some cases of impetigo are caused by the regular consumption of biologically impure foods, especially those which contain chemical toxins (preservatives, taste enhancers, colorants, etc.).
