Does this rash look like impetigo? Herpes? Tinea? Cellulitis? Here's a close look and a link to the answer and discussion.

This rash, which was confined to this 4-year-old's face, started 2 weeks earlier: it was initially mildly itchy and painless, red, and dry. It has since become widespread and weepy.

Diagnostic contenders include impetigo, herpes type 1, tinea, and cellulitis.
