Singer tries to hide inflamed lump

Amy Winehouse has been snapped with a nasty swelling on her cheek.

The troubled singer, 24, has been trying to conceal the painful lump with make-up but the left side of her face is clearly infected.

Dressed in a short black dress and carrying boxes to her new East London home on Friday, Amy kept her head down as photographers tried to get snaps.

‘Amy has been diagnosed with impetigo which she’s been told can be highly contagious,’ Amy’s spokesman told the News Of The World.

‘Because of that she’s been put on antibiotics and may have to stay home alone for the next few days.’

Impetigo often develops when a sore or rash has been scratched repetitively.

The singer looked radiantly healthy after her recent stint in rehab but it’s alleged she’s lapsing back into bad habits.

Amy is reported to have collapsed last week after taking a ‘cocktail of prescribed medication and illegal drugs’.
