Introduction: Impetigo is the bacterial infection of the skin most commonly seen in infants and children. Bullous and nonbullous are the two forms of impetigo. It usually presents with vesicles, bullae, crusted erosions, or ulcers. Case report: We report two cases in which the first case showed crusted erosions all over the body and the second one had bullous lesions over the extremities, which eventually lead to gangrene of fingers and toes. These were due to the bacterial infections of the skin. Discussion: Superficial bacterial infection should be one of the differential diagnoses, whenever there is diffuse exfoliation of the skin or peripheral gangrene.
