Impetigo in adult-

I am a 25 yo female, with a history of eczema and acne. I have gotten impetigo probably 4 times in my life, starting at 11 or 12 years old after exposure to a sibling who had it. Since then, I have gotten it at very random times, with no exposure or known source. I believe it happens when I have a break in my skin, such as from acne. My impetigo has reoccurred in the same spot right below my lip every single time. I have the mupirocin ointment prescribed and started using that the day that I felt the blisters forming. I also cleansed with acv. I started taking zinc, grapefruit seed extract, and echinacea. On the fourth day, I used a tattoo salve on it overnight mixed with the antibiotic ointment and jojoba oil, with gauze on to keep it moist. I woke up to it being 10x better, the skin is almost completely healed underneath!!!!! The most improvement overnight I have yet to see with this condition. I am going to keep it globbed on top of it until it is completely healed.

The salve I used contains coconut oil, beeswax, palm oil, cupuacu butter, calendula extract, chamomille extract, lavender oil, vitamin e, peru balsam oil. I 10000% recommend purchasing this if you have frequent outbreaks and applying it in combination with the antibiotic ointment. I wish I started using it sooner.
