U042 - Recognition and Management of Allergic Skin Reactions in the Athlete

Saturday, February 17; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • 1. Recognize the morphologic features and patterns that should raise suspicion for athletically related cutaneous allergy
  • 2. Demonstrate numerous prevention strategies to prevent allergic skin reactions in athletes

Description

An athlete’s skin continuously endures exposure to allergens during sporting activities. The athletic venue, protective equipment, sporting implements, medications and even the sport itself induce and foster cutaneous reactions. This lecture reviews the epidemiology of various entities especially as they relate to specific sports. This lecture will enable participants to recognize the morphologic features and patterns that should raise suspicion for sports-related cutaneous allergy. Sports-related urticaria, contact dermatitis, and exercise-induced anaphylaxis specifically will be discussed.
