Hockey-Induced Eczema

So, I've been getting a bit of (what I think is) eczema on the back of my left elbow lately. I've gotten it on occasion the past few months or so and this morning, after a hockey game last night, put two and two together and figured it may well be from hockey. I wear long underwear, so I never have pads directly touching my skin, but I think that the eczema still might be coming from all the sweat and rubbing produced from hockey.

Anybody else here think they've gotten eczema from playing hockey or other sports? I think this might be a thing.

Dunno if it was eczema, but i got a nasty rash on the inside of my elbow. I washed my pads and started wearing long sleeves after that.

When is the last time you washed your gear? Even if you spray it down and air it out, you should wash your gear every now and then.

Sports Rash

Form of sports rash. Discuss with your medical professional or clinic.

This. I had a small bout of it several winters ago on my neck that I think was due to my neckguard, which I actually still use and has not had any problems since.

I have eczema (from birth), to your doctor and get some antibiotics (if it is eczema). Apply lotion and other moisturizers. Lots of showers.

Best advice - Doctor.

Saw mine and found out what it was and how to clear it up and avoid it in the future. That's why we pay them.

I have had it. It has come and gone throughout my life, and I'm certain its hockey related as it always pops up on parts of my body that are covered by equipment and I'm always completely clear of it if I don't play for a while. I went to a dermatologist and she prescribed a stronger Corticosteroid cream and it worked. But it pops up from time to time to different parts of my body.

But definitely be careful, maybe go once or twice to a dermatologist to start just to make sure its not dangerous, and how to differentiate the dangerous rashes from the regular eczema type of rash.

Yes for wearing the same sweat-wicking shirt for many weeks without washing it. Red dots ALL over exactly where a t-shirt goes for about a week. Do laundry.

I recommend you wash whatever gear is affecting whatever area.
