Training room management of medical conditions: sports dermatology.
Clin Sports Med 2005; 24(3):565-98, viii-ixCS

Abstract

Athletes' skin is subject to a distinct array of physical and environmental stressors. Trauma, the elements, and pathogenic organisms constantly challenge the skin's integrity. This article intends to arm the clinician with a fundamental knowledge of infections, mechanical injuries, and environmental insults common to the skin of athletes. Photographs corresponding to the described entities are included as figures. Because rapid return to play is the ultimate goal after injury or illness, there is a section dedicated to play restrictions as set forth by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. Although the evaluation and management of cutaneous disease is a challenging endeavor, a consistent and systematic approach to this most accessible organ can result in early diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and ultimate performance.
