How can impetigo be prevented?

Impetigo can be prevented by avoiding contact with people who have the condition. If contact cannot be completely avoided, the chance of developing impetigo can be reduced by keeping the skin clean and limiting the sharing of food, drinks, bathwater, towels or other personal items. At present, there are no vaccinations to prevent this condition.
