    Abstract

    We conducted a pilot randomized controlled trial comparing trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole to benzathine penicillin for treatment of impetigo in Aboriginal children. Treatment was successful in 7 of 7 children treated with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and 5 of 6 treated with benzathine penicillin. Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole achieved microbiological clearance and healing of sores from which ?-hemolytic streptococci and community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus were initially cultured. � 2010 Paediatrics and Child Health Division (Royal Australasian College of Physicians).
