Comparison of tropical antispectics and inert ointment for treatment of impetigo - protocol for a pilot perspective randomised double-blinded controlled trial for the topical treatment of impetigo in Australian general practice.

Indicative Funding
$19,512 over 2 years
Summary
Impetigo is a common childhood illness which is more prevalent in tropical regions. Australian guidelines recommend treatment with topical or oral antibiotics depending on severity. There is currently insufficient evidence to support the use of non-antibiotic topical treatments. Prescription of antibiotics is an important issue as antimicrobial resistance is currently a serious threat to global health. Consequently, it is imperative that non-antibiotic treatments for common conditions are explored. This pilot study will explore topical antibiotics versus topical antiseptics versus inert paraffin ointment on the treatment of patients with impetigo, provding data to determine the feasibility of a future larger study.
