  SSSS is usually diffuse, associated with sytemic features and question stem will tell u regarding tampon or nasal pack.
Impetigo is localised and usually not associated with systemic toxicity

  yes, impetigo is a localized infection with the honey colored crust buzzword

SSSS is diffuse with skin sloughing, and septic signs and symptoms
