What does the early stage of impetigo contagious look like? I have a small pinkish red spot that was itchy but not weepy or fluid filled.

Impetigo. Impetigo is an infected skin sore, from whatever cause. It can start with and insect bite, scratch, or any break in the skin. Bacteria get in and cause the skin infection. It will become weepy and develop yellow crusts. An abscess can cause a hard or fluid filled swelling in the skin with redness around it. For any of these, see your doctor.
