REVIEW ARTICLES

Sports Dermatology Series
Fungal Infections and Parasitic Infestations in Sports
Expedient Identification and Treatment
The warm, moist skin of an athlete, combined with skin-to-skin transmission potential, presents an inviting medium for various fungal species. The same factors also contribute to a favorable environment for parasitic infestations. Prompt recognition and treatment gives athletes' skin and participation status the "all clear."
Rebecca C. Winokur, MD; William W. Dexter, MD

Practice Essentials Series
Herpes and Tinea in Wrestling
Managing Outbreaks, Knowing When to Disqualify
Of all sports, perhaps none have the level of abrasive skin-to-skin contact as wrestling. Unique skin infection issues in the sport have crucial return-to-play implications. Physicians who have working knowledge of herpes and tinea infections are the key to keeping skin healthy and teams competitive.
Gregory L. Landry, MD; Cindy J. Chang, MD
