NICE guideline on impetigo: antimicrobial prescribing

The final guideline has now been published on impetigo.

You can also find the supporting evidence, as well as all the stakeholder comments that were received during consultation and the responses to these comments. The comments were invaluable in helping to develop and refine the guideline. An equality impact assessment has also been produced to support the guideline.

The recommendations from this guideline have been included in the NICE Pathway on impetigo, which brings together everything said on impetigo in an interactive flowchart. There is brief information about the guideline for people using services, carers and the public at ‘Information for the public’.
