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.
