Yesterday I went to the doctor about a red itchy patch that has appeared on my jawline. He informed me that I had impetigo, and wrote me a prescription.

I should have been asking how serious it was, and whether I would die, and whether it was contagious but all I could think was: I've got a disease with a proper Victorian-sounding name, woo-hoo!

(It's not at all serious, don't worry. Google for it if you really must.)
