I'm curious to know if anyone has had a bout of Impetigo at any point in their lives following Bacterial Meningitis? A few weeks ago I developed what I thought was a pimple at the right side of my mouth. It quickly became clear that it was no ordinary spot, it grew, formed a horrid crust and wept. It was awful! My GP guessed straight away what it was and put me on a course of antibiotics. Thankfully they worked, though I'm now left with a scar where the thing was. I looked up Impetigo and discovered that it is from the same bacteria as Meningitis. I'm a bit worried now that I could suffer from a worse bout of Impetigo, or worse, another bout of Meningitis! Any advice appreciated. 😊
