What's Eating Amy?

3/18/2008 6:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Is Amy Winehouse really suffering from impetigo? We talked to several board-certified dermatologists for the lowdown.

One doctor said Winehouse might be suffering from MRSA, a dangerous staph bacteria that's resistant to antibiotics.

Another doctor said the problem in figuring it out from the picture is that Amy has so much makeup on, it's hard to see the exact nature of the skin condition.

And still another doc said he didn't think the condition is caused from drug use (not that Amy uses drugs), because the lesions were not oval-shaped, which is a marker. But the plot thickens ... yet another doc said if she picked at the sores, that could change their shape. Dinner, anyone?

BTW, one of the docs -- famed Bev Hills skin doc Arnie Klein -- said, "Amy Winehouse should not be coming into close contact with other people while she has open sores." You'd have to be crazy to do that. Then again, Amy's friends are ...

It is awful for PROFESSIONALS to diagnose ANYONE from photos... but I guess reading the various blogs is no different. Whatever Amy's condition is... it's not bigger than God. Praying for her is about all we should do... but not everyone lives by Godly principals. Glad I don't have to answer to not doing what we're suppose to do. Be easy guys because you will certainly have to answer for it, as does Amy....

Yep, she's a goner. Surprised she is still alive. John Bonham and Jimi Hendrix died from alcohol withdrawal (choked on their own vomit), Janis od'd on herion, the verdict is still out on Morrison, the list goes on and on.

I'm thinking crystal meth too. Recently saw some pictures of those users and it was ugly, just like Amy's problem.

How very sad. She's so young and so talented. I wish she would move in with her brother or her parents and get away from the pests orbiting her and providing her with drugs.
