What's that on your leg???
So we all know that possible trading of germs comes with the territory of doing a sport where we are in very close contact the WHOLE time. But some people don’t know what exactly they are. So this post is going to be all about those lovely little infections you can get on your body by competing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, MMA, and whatever other martial arts on these mats. The types of skin infections can be separated into bacterial, viral, and fungal. I’m going to try and hit on the most common ones, that way if you do get one, you can get it checked out and know how to get it taken care of.
* Writers note, there will be labeled pictures of the infections… I’m warning you now. So please don’t be mad at me!

So is this just a post to get traffic to your blog? Because I don't roll that way. It actually makes me not want to visit your blog. If you want to spread that information, how about you put the information in the thread?

Post in thread plz.. Noblogfurmich!"The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero projects his fear onto his opponent while the coward runs. 'Fear'. It's the same thing, but it's what you do with it that matters". - Cus D'Amato

I wash my gi every time I train & shower/use Defense products right after I get off the mat. I wish more people cared about it. Good article. Thanks!

Well can you put the text in here. If you can't put the information here, why bring up the issue. It's like saying, "Hey, I have a secret, but I'm not going to tell you."
Plus it makes for a pretty shitty thread, yah know, as in a low content thread!

I got a nasty staph infection (I think) in my neck, possibly from a dirty boxing headgear. It's itchy and no-one obviously will spar or train with me now until it heals. I got some cream thing for it from the pharamacy and will see a doctor just in case today or tomorrow. Sucks, but atleast I learned to take hygiene very seriously now, especially when dealing with equipment owned by the gym.
Sorry to rail the thread back to the original subject (minus linkspam)..
