Almost half a million people must deal with skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI) contracted through skin abrasions. On average, ten percent of these infections require hospitalization, resulting in a considerable financial burden on families and the healthcare system. Wrestling and yoga mats, indoor synthetic turfs, locker rooms, tiles can harbor bacteria for an extended period.
SSTI is one of the most common causes of community-associated infections (CAI). Small skin abrasions and trauma combined with contaminated, unsanitary, over-crowded environments (such as athletic clubs and gyms, pools, schools, and public places) can favor the acquisition and transmission of bacteria and viruses. Staphylococcus and streptococcus are the primary cause of skin infections that can lead to outbreaks of diseases.
Athletes and young adults are the most susceptible demographics to contract infections in recreational environments. The number of community-associated MRSA infections has been constant over the last few years (16,000 per year), while the rate of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) by Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) slightly decreased.
