Clinical Review

Timing of clinical review will depend on several factors including:

  • Diagnosis

    • Cellulitis in children will normally warrant clinical review.
    • Consider clinical review for boils that have required incision and drainage or packing.
    • Impetigo may warrant clinical review especially regarding return to school etc¬† and/or if extensive. Children with impetigo¬† should stay away from day-care or school until the lesions have crusted over or they have received at least 24 hours of antibiotic treatment.

  • Site and Severity.

  • Age of patient.

  • Co-morbidities.

  • Knowledge of family and social circumstances .
