That Ain't Impetigo
Okay, perhaps y'all aren't as obsessed with Amy Winehouse as I am, but surely by now you've heard about her skin problem that's caused bruising, redness and swelling. Many are saying that she is being treated with antibiotics for impetigo, but as a medical writer off and on for the last 15 years, I know that impetigo usually only hits kids with underdeveloped immune systems, and it may cause redness and tenderness but it doesn't usually cause the kind of chipmunk swelling Amy's kisser is showing.
I don't know what she has, but knowing what little I do about her, umm, hobbies, I think it's gotta be something more serious like a nasty staph infection, or worse.
I know for sure shooting street drugs can bring on a staph infection as quickly as you can say "rehab."
This chick has got to get her shit together before her head blows off her shoulders.
A little bitty antibiotic RX isn't gonna fix what she probably has.
Hear me now and believe me later.
