deinonychus commented on the word herpes gladiatorum
"Herpes Gladiatorum is one of the most infectious of herpes-caused diseases, and is transmissible by skin-to-skin contact."
"While the disease is commonly passed through normal human contact, it is strongly associated with contact sports — outbreaks in sporting clubs being relatively common. Other names for the disease are herpes rugbiorum or 'scrumpox' (after rugby football), 'wrestler's herpes' or 'mat pox' (after wrestling)."
