If you love playing sports, it is important that you be aware of the rashes, fungal infections, and other skin conditions that you may develop due to these activities. Being aware of these potential hazards will help you identify them so that you can remain safe and healthy while still pursuing your passion for sports.

Many people are not aware of the fact that running can lead to the development of toenail fungal infections. Running places a lot of stress on the toenails. This can cause them to become deformed due to the trauma placed on them from regular running. Once the toenails have become deformed, they are more susceptible to the development of fungal infections.

There are a variety of other issues that can occur from athletic activities and contact sports. At the Dermatology Institute for Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Surgery, we can provide you with additional information and treatments for these issues. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
