Amy Winehouse Battles Skin Disease

Amy Winehouse Battles Skin Disease

Amy Winehouse has bumps on her face as of late because she’s been battling impetigo.

The bacterial skin infection usually produces blisters or sores on the face and hands and is “highly contagious, and scratching or touching the sores is likely to spread the infection to other parts of the body as well as to other people.”

Winehouse, 24, had been prescribed antibiotics to fight off the disease.

YUCK.

Get well soon, Amy!

    first
    i hate her she is so ugly and she can’t sing

  • Diva

    Poor thing

    Get well soon Amy. That young woman has had so many knocks in life and one of the few highlights of her life, winning the Grammys, and that witch Natalie Cole tried to put a damper on that.

  • Helena

    #2, you’re a stupid ****, who clearly is shallow. Jared is posting about her skin disease and that’s the only thing you can think of? :l

  • http://yahoo Yes

    I think Amy has a talent therefore i say get well soon to her. Too bad about it though, maybe it’s because she doent take a bath more often.

    Get well soon Amy!

  • Me.

    I agree with #2. Amy is a fucking loser. Are you all tone deaf she can’t sing, she looks like a skank. Stupid bitch.

  • Sandbitch

    Impetigo! Proof she doesn’t only look dirty.

    Amy, having a bath will get the, er, muck out from under your fingernails – then next time you pick your nose, you won’t give yourself Impetigo. Oh, and maybe you should also rinse the bong out occasionally…

  • hafer

    get well soon amy. yes, the article is about her skin disease but someone turned it into dumb child like name calling. she has a great voice her music is mesmerizing, otherwise she wouldn’t have won all those grammys.

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Helena: Do you have to use the ‘C’ word to get your point across? I find it offensive and very low class. I’m sure there are other words you could use.

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Get well Amy. Looove your sound.

  • jim

    She’s so fugly as it is, even without the blisters. Maybe she could shed her old skin and grow a new one. Like a snake, you know.

  • Mae

    Amy’s voice is very different from most singers. I love it. Yes, to all those idiots who belittle other people. She did win the awards for her voice. What accomplishments have you lina, sandbitch, and jim done so far in your life? Belittling isn’t one. You guys have very low self esteem it seems.

    Skin problems are a common problem with junkies, I guess it has to do with the low immune system thanks to the drugs.

  • Andra

    That’s what happen when you don’t wash yourself everyday. Disgusting

  • ezekiel

    Andra,

    actually you can get impetigo ba going to the gym, it doesn’t only happen to people who don’t wash themselves, I caught it last year when I was in London, it’s horrible and disgusting, I did not know what was happening to me, I’d never heard of impetigo, and I wash myself everyday, I’m a very clean-type of person who takes a shower everyday, sometimes two, but if someone has passed it on to you there’s nothing you can do, you need antibiotics and then it’s gone but your face will have suffered a little. My sister had a shock when she saw me, it was disgusting, it’s also painful when you wake up in the morning you just want to scratch your face

  • esther

    I caught it as well a couple of years ago, it truly is disgusting, you won’t laugh if it ever happens to you.

  • Sandbitch

    Hae Mae,

    I’ve never heard Amy Winehouse sing -but I can see she needs to practice more in the shower.

    Having a voice isn’t an accomplishment sweetie. Neither is knowing what “most” singers sound like…

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Esther: Glad you’re all better. LOL

  • diane

    I feel sorry for Amy get well and good luck

  • hellzapoppin’

    I LOVE Amy! She’s got an incredible voice and style. This past year has been horrible for her and I am wishing her all of the best.

    If you haven’t heard her sing, check out http://www.amywinehouse.com She’s incredible.

  • lola

    Oh, that’s awful! The poor girl is totally hitting rock bottom, medically and…well…every other way, too.

    WHAT A GROSS MAGGOT

  • PALVASHA

    JUST JARED IS SOOOOOOO FUKING RUDE, IM NOT HER FAN BUT U CANT SAY ‘YUCK’ THATS FUKING RUDEEEEEEEEEEE

  • Dancer

    Impetigo is very easy to get. You can get it from a gym, playground, water fountain etc. A lot of children get it. It’s not like it is a terminal disease or anything–the way the media is talking you would think she had something exotic and fatal.

  • Dancer

    PALVASHA–if you want to swear every other word–go to DListed or Perez Hilton. One of the nice things about Just Jared is most of the posts are fairly clean. But then, folks who have to swear with every other word, generally aren’t intelligent enough to use non-swear words to get their point across.

  • mjkbk

    Wait. The reason Amy Winehouse’s cheek was swollen like a balloon was due to impetigo? What a bunch of baloney! Impetigo causes weeping, red, skin lesions, not enlargement of body parts.

    Someone is lying.

  • Josach

    Amy is very talented and some of those folks who talk bad about her don’t know anything about music. God does not like ugliness.

    May God blesses Amy and I hope she gets Well.

    Today she has impetigo tomorrow could be your turn, therefore stop talking trash and mind your own business

  • Darren

    I already wrote a not so nice e-mail about this creature somewhere else. I cannot bring myself to do it again, sorry!
