Honey Colored Crust

As the wet patches on the skin dry, the infantigo may leave a tan or honey-colored crust where the sores were. They may look like corn flakes stuck to the child's skin.3‘Impetigo.’ Nhs.uk, 19 Oct. 2017, www.nhs.uk/conditions/impetigo/#symptoms

These honey-colored patches may be itchy or slightly sore. It is recommended to cut the child's nails short to prevent deep scratches and to keep the spots covered where possible by a sterile dressing. The child should take the full round of antibiotics prescribed, even if the crust goes away.2‘Impetigo - Symptoms and Causes.’ Mayo Clinic, 21 Apr. 2021, www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/impetigo/symptoms-causes/syc-20352352
