Fungal Skin Infections and Parasitic Infestations

Fungal skin infections and parasitic infestations are common among athletes who participate in sports requiring close physical contact. These infections are quite contagious, and widespread outbreaks can occur if athletes continue to participate in sports without proper treatment. Most of these infections can be treated with topical medications, although some may require oral medication. Athletes who participate in sports at the high school and collegiate levels may be restricted from returning to activity until they complete a minimum period of treatment.
