Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection. It is more common in children than in adults.

It is characterized by
either small blisters, dark or honey-colored crust that forms after the pustules burst. Impetigo is
contagious and is caused by strains of both staph and strep bacteria.

Cellulitis is an infection of the deeper layers of skin and the underlying tissue. It can be serious if not
treated promptly. The infection develops suddenly and can spread through the body quickly.

Erysipelas is a bacterial skin infection involving the upper dermis that characteristically extends into the
superficial cutaneous lymphatics. It is a tender, intensely erythematous, indurated plaque with a sharply
demarcated border.

Upper respiratory tract infection (URI) represents the most common acute illness evaluated in the
outpatient setting. URIs range from the common cold—typically a mild, self-limited, catarrhal syndrome
of the nasopharynx—to life-threatening illnesses such as epiglottitis
Details of the patient's history aid in differentiating a common cold from conditions that require targeted
therapy, such as group A streptococcal pharyngitis, bacterial sinusitis, and lower respiratory tract
infections.

Scarlet fever, also known as scarlatina, is an infection that can develop in people who have strep throat.
It’s characterized by a bright red rash on the body,
usually accompanied by a high fever and sore throat.
The same bacteria that causes strep throat also causes
scarlet fever.

Rheumatic fever is an inflammatory disease that can develop as a complication of inadequately treated
strep throat or scarlet fever. Strep throat and scarlet fever are
caused by an infection with streptococcus bacteria.Rheumatic
fever is most common in 5- to 15-year-old children, though it can
develop in younger children and adults.
Post-streptococcal GN is a form of glomerulonephritis. It is caused by an infection with a type of
streptococcus bacteria. The infection does not occur in the kidneys, but in a different part of the body,
such as the skin or throat.

The strep bacterial infection causes the tiny blood vessels in the
filtering units of the kidneys (glomeruli) to become inflamed. This
makes the kidneys less able to filter the urine.
