Goldenseal, which was suggested last week to fight the infection causing impetigo, cannot be used long term and is effectiveness is reduced after 2 weeks, replied a reader. Impetigo is a systemic staph infection, so cleansing the lymphatic system by using lymph soaks and drops may be more useful. Also, as the skin is considered to be the third kidney, impetigo could be caused by chronically deficient kidneys. Fortifying these organs could therefore also help alleviate symptoms.
