Swimmer's dermatoses

弄潮兒的皮膚病

SC Ng 吳順展and TS Cheng 鄭天錫

Abstract

Swimmer's dermatoses are not uncommon in dermatological practice with the increased popularity of swimming and aquatic leisure activities. There is a wide variety of dermatological conditions related to swimming or aquatic leisure activities, the exposed aquatic environment or their equipments. These include infections such as swimming pool granuloma caused by Mycobacterium marinum or cutaneous larva migrans, and non-infectious entities such as sea-bather's eruption or contact dermatitis to swimming equipment.

隨著游泳及水域休閒活動的普及,游泳相關的皮膚病在皮膚科門診並不罕見。當中病例林林種種,可以由該嬉水活動直接引起,或由外在環境或設備所導致。其中包括傳染病類如表皮幼蟲移行症或海洋分枝桿菌引起的游泳池肉芽腫,另非傳染病類如海水浴皮疹或游泳設備相關的接觸性皮炎。
