So earlier I ate some chocolate that my brother who has impetigo had eaten a bit of, and just now he's said that I might've gotten impetigo from eating it. Is it true or nah?

Impetigo is highly infectious so possibly.

Unless you slathered the chocolate bar all over your face, then it's unlikely. You're likely safe if he's already on the antibiotic cream.
