From wikipedia:

Impetigo is a superficial skin infection most common among children age 2–6 years and is also prone to people who play close contact sports such as football and wrestling, regardless of age.

Impetigo is usually caused by the same streptococcus strain that causes strep throat, Streptococcus pyogenes; it may also be caused by Staphylococcus aureus.

Scratching may spread the lesions.

The infection is spread by direct contact with lesions or with nasal carriers. The incubation period is 1–3 days. Dried streptococci in the air are not infectious to intact skin.

One or more pimple-like lesions surrounded by reddened skin. Lesions fill with pus, then break down over 4–6 days and form a thick crust. Impetigo is often associated with insect bites, cuts, and other forms of trauma to the skin. Itching is common.

People who suffer from cold sores have shown higher chances of suffering from impetigo. Those who normally suffer from cold sores should consult a doctor if normal treatment has no effect.

You can have all the talent in the world. But it will get you nowhere without your teammates
