  • ISSN : 1528-3356



Athletes commonly encounter skin problems as a result of their exercise endeavours. Many of these dermatoses are related to skin infections. Bacteria, viruses, fungi, atypical mycobacteria, and parasites may all hinder athletes' performances. Regular surveillance by athletes and coaches assists in promptly identifying these skin infections. Prompt therapy helps to thwart team epidemics. Prevention is paramount and includes both pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods. This review article reviews in detail the epidemiology of skin infections, the clinical presentation of skin infections, the management of skin infections, and the prevention of skin infections.
