Abstract

Athletes represent a unique group of dermatologic patients. Intense and close contact with others' skin primarily places the athlete at risk for infection. Failure to acknowledge the role of sports participation in the genesis of skin infections leads to delayed diagnoses, inappropriate therapy, and subsequent epidemics. Simple prevention measures curb epidemics and allow teams to practice and compete without disruption.
