    Default Amy Winehouse diagnosed with impetigo

    What's up with those bumps on Amy Winehouse's face? The singer has been diagnosed with impetigo, her spokesman confirms to PEOPLE.

    It's a bacterial skin infection that causes pimple-like lumps and is "is highly contagious, and scratching or touching the sores is likely to spread the infection to other parts of the body as well as to other people," according to the Mayo Clinic's Web site.

    And yes, Winehouse, 24, had been prescribed drugs ... in the form of antibiotics.

    As for how the singer's feeling, "She's fine," a pal tells PEOPLE. "She's not hiding away. She's never been one to care what people think."

    Weird. I never noticed any bumps before.

    If she's on anibiotics someone should tell her that shit don't work if you drink!

    From good old Wikipedia:

    Transmission

    The infection is spread by direct contact with lesions or with nasal carriers. The incubation period is 1–3 days. Dried streptococci in the air are not infectious to intact skin.



    Hmmmmmm dodgy coke? Sharing impliments with a carrier. Either way, yuck!

    On an episode of Roseanne..a rich lady had bumps on her hand, and Roseanne told her it was Impetigo and that her kids got it from wiping snot from their nose with their hand..

    I thought it was red and blisery, like shingles...off to google.

    Looks like poison ivy blisters, filled with gross sap.
