Can I Avoid Skin Infections As a Wrestler?

As a wrestler, you know that the sport requires a lot of physical contact and close quarters. While this can be exciting and challenging, it also means that you're at a higher risk of developing skin infections. At Matguard USA, we understand the importance of keeping your skin healthy and clean during matches, and we want to share some tips on how to avoid skin infections in wrestling.

Preventing MRSA

MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a type of staph infection that is resistant to certain antibiotics. It is highly contagious and can be easily spread through close skin-to-skin contact, shared equipment, and poor hygiene. Symptoms of MRSA include redness, swelling, and pus-filled sores. To prevent MRSA, it is crucial to practice good hygiene, such as regularly washing your hands and keeping any cuts or scrapes clean and covered. At Matguard USA, we offer an antiseptic spray that actively cleans cuts and scrapes, effectively reducing the risk of infection.

Preventing Ringworm 

Ringworm, a fungal infection, is characterized by a ring-shaped rash on the skin. It can occur on various parts of the body, including the scalp, feet, and groin. Individuals can spread ringworm through direct skin-to-skin contact, shared equipment, and contaminated surfaces. Ringworm is highly contagious. To prevent ringworm, it is essential to practice good hygiene, such as showering after wrestling and avoiding sharing personal items. Additionally, keeping your skin dry and clean to prevent fungal growth. At Matguard USA, we provide an antifungal spray that wrestlers can use to actively prevent the growth of fungus on their skin.

Preventing Herpes 

Individuals can contract herpes, a viral infection, through skin-to-skin contact, especially during wrestling. Individuals can contract herpes which is a highly contagious viral infection, characterized by blisters on or around the genitals or mouth. To prevent herpes, it is important to avoid skin-to-skin contact with an infected person and to practice safe sex. At Matguard USA, we provide atheltic body wipes that are designed to specifically prevent infections in wrestlers. 

Preventing Impetigo 

To prevent impetigo, individuals should keep their skin clean and dry. Individuals can use Matguard USA's antiseptic wash to clean their skin and reduce the risk of infection. Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection that causes red sores that burst and form a yellow-crusted scab. It is highly contagious and can spread through direct skin-to-skin contact or contact with contaminated surfaces. To prevent impetigo or other skin diseases, we reccomend using our athletic body wipes as well as our body spray cartridges. 

In conclusion, Matguard USA offers a range of products that can help prevent skin infections in wrestling. By using our products, wrestlers can reduce the risk of contracting MRSA, ringworm, herpes, and impetigo, and focus on the sport they love. It's crucial to maintain good hygiene practices, use proper protective gear and take necessary precautions to avoid these skin infections.
