How To Prevent Common Skin Infections At The Gym
While working out has many benefits, including weight control, disease prevention, and even mood improvement, germs can thrive at the gym. This could put gym goers, like you, at risk for a variety of common skin infections. Although skin infections are not a reason to cancel your gym membership, the American Academy of Dermatology shares a few simple steps on how to avoid germs while you’re at the gym.
Wear loose-fitting, moisture-wicking clothes. This will help keep your skin dry and prevent germs from growing. Remember to wash your gym clothes after wearing them.
Always wear shoes, especially around pools, and in locker rooms and showers. Keep a pair of shower shoes, flip-flops, or sandals in your gym bag. Never walk barefoot at a public gym.
Keep any cuts clean and covered. Avoid using saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs until your wound is healed.
Disinfect equipment before and after using it. Clean equipment with disinfectant wipes or spray. For additional protection, consider adding a barrier, such as a towel, between your skin and shared surfaces, like workout benches and bicycle seats. When it’s possible to provide your own equipment, such as a yoga mat, bring it from home rather than using the gym’s.
Wash or sanitize your hands immediately after working out.Shower as soon as possible. After showering, put on clean clothes, including clean socks and underwear. Never share personal care items, including towels and razors.Keep an eye on your skin, and if you notice signs of an infection, such as increased pain or swelling, or redness, make an appointment to see a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Kim Nichols.
