I am what disease you are asking about.  I assume you mean impetigo?  This is a very generalized term for various skin infection--it can be Strep (this is seen in humans) or Staph (this is seen in humans and dogs).  Depending upon the severity antibiotics may be needed.
There are many things that can cause a thickening or leather feel to the skin.  Your dog needs to be seen by a veterinarian to determine the cause of the leather skin so appropriate treatment can be started.
