Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Impetigo is caused by staph. The pharmacist is correct and it can only be treated by prescription cream Mupirocin 2% ointment. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please reply with any questions you may have. Thank you for coming to Just Answer for help.
