Answer

Patients with skin infections should know the importance of personal hygiene. In epidemics, all close personal contacts and family members should be told to seek medical attention for prophylactic treatment of streptococcal infections.

For patient education resources, see Blood in the Urine (Hematuria) and Strep Throat.
