Amy Winehouse's Diseased Skin Color Almost "Back to Black"

Amy Winehouse may not want to go to rehab, but she had no choice but to head to the emergency room, where Grammy-winner Winehouse has been diagnosed with impetigo, a bacterial skin infection.

What is impetigo?

According to the Mayo Clinic Web site, “Impetigo starts as a red sore that quickly ruptures, oozes for a few days and then forms a yellowish-brown crust that looks like honey or brown sugar. The disease 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.”
The impetigo diagnosis explains the discoloring and the bumps on Amy Winehouse's face. As far as the non-bumped parts of Winehouse's face, the doctors are sticking with their previous diagnosis: ugly stick.
