Skin diseases are common among athletes for several reasons, including environmental factors, trauma to the skin, close quarters and sometimes questionable hygiene practices. Educate parents, coaches and student athletes about the three common types of skin diseases – fungal, viral and bacterial -  with the help of NATA’s latest infographic handout. Featured in the November NATA News, the skin disease infographic handout includes a detailed description of common skin diseases as well as prevention basics, such as good hygiene practices, laundering and disinfecting clothing and equipment and daily skin inspection for abrasions, cuts and skin lesions.

Don’t forget to check out NATA’s other infographic resources in its Injury Infographic Handout Library.
