In brief: No

I have not seen a single case of ecthyma gangrenosum in the past 12 years taking care of children full time.
So no i don't believe it is common at all.

In brief: No

Thankfully, it is rare at any age.
It's a dread skin infection in those already seriously sick, and complicates pseudomonas sepsis.
