Participation in ice-skating sports, particularly figure skating, ice hockey and speed skating, has increased in recent years. Competitive athletes in these sports experience a range of dermatological injuries related to mechanical factors: exposure to cold temperatures, infectious agents and inflammation. Part I of this two part review discussed the mechanical dermatoses affecting ice-skating athletes that result from friction, pressure, and chronic irritation related to athletic equipment and… 
Skin Conditions in Figure Skaters, Ice-Hockey Players and Speed Skaters
TLDR
This review is Part I of a subsequent companion review and provides a comprehensive review of mechanical dermatoses experienced by ice-skating athletes, including skater’s nodules and its variants, pump bumps, piezogenic pedal papules, talon noir, skate/lace bite, friction bullae, corns and calluses, onychocryptosis, skater's toe and skate blade-induced lacerations.
The "Bauer Bump:" Ice hockey skates as a common cause of Haglund syndrome.
TLDR
It is important for clinicians to understand the nature of Haglund syndrome in hockey players so that it can be appropriately diagnosed, managed, and ultimately, prevented.
Lace bite: A review of tibialis anterior tendinopathy in ice hockey players
TLDR
Lace bite is an inflammation of the tibialis anterior tendon which often affects hockey players in the beginning of the season, and by having a better understanding of this injury, team physicians will be able to more promptly diagnose and effectively treat this condition.
Ultrasound in Sports and Occupational Dermatology
TLDR
The ultrasound features in some particular conditions such as “biker's and surfer's panniculitis,’ “fiddler's neck,” piezogenic papules, and lipoatrophy semicircularis, among others, are discussed.
Practicing Sport in Cold Environments: Practical Recommendations to Improve Sport Performance and Reduce Negative Health Outcomes
TLDR
This review summarizes the current available knowledge specifically related to the physiological impact of cold exposure in an attempt to provide practitioners and coaches alike with practical recommendations to minimize any potential negative performance effects, mitigate health issues, and best optimize athlete preparation across various sporting disciplines.
Recognition and Treatment of Freezing and Nonfreezing Cold Injuries
TLDR
The more common nonfreezing cold injuries, though less severe than frostbite, may lead to short- and long-term complications requiring treatment and are discussed also.
Pediatric Dermatology Photoquiz: Localized Targetoid Plaques in a Teenager
TLDR
Physical examination revealed four smooth, edematous, blanching, annular and targetoid pink plaques on the anterior distal left thigh and overlying and just distal to the left knee that were well healed and uninvolved by the eruption.
Asthma and Allergies
TLDR
E elite athletes, depending on their sports disciplines, who are prone to develop asthma or allergic diseases should be monitored in regard to the development of symptoms and airway inflammation and hyperresponsiveness.
Case–Control Study on Exercise-Induced Vasculitis in Hikers
TLDR
In this study, EIV cases had more chronic venous disease and longer mean walking distances than controls, and those with EIV had significantly more saphenous vein insufficiency and C3 venous insufficient than controls.

Sport-specific injuries and medical problems of figure skaters.
TLDR
Primary care physicians are able to contribute to their figure skating patient's health by recognition and appropriate treatment of acute injuries and prevention of chronic injuries and other medical problems.
Bunga Pad-induced ankle dermatitis in a figure skater.
TLDR
Discontinuation of the use of Bunga Pads resulted in the complete resolution of the chronic eruption of lanolin-induced foot ACD, and the patient was patch-tested with the North American Contact Dermatitis Group standard allergen series and the New York University shoe allergenic series.

TLDR
The basics of figure skating are reviewed along with the common injuries and medical conditions often experienced by figure skaters to allow a physician to feel comfortable dealing with potential rinkside emergencies and issues.
Professional Ice Hockey Players: A High-Risk Group for Fungal Infection of the Foot?
TLDR
Although circumstances point towards an increased risk in acquiring pedal fungal infection in professional ice hockey players, personal physical condition as well as individual and institutional provisions seem to build a substantial counterbalance against mycotic affection.
Injuries in elite pair skaters and ice dancers
TLDR
Changes in boot design and the training for lifting maneuvers should be initiated and studied to attempt to reduce the unacceptably high injury rate among elite pair skaters and ice dancers.

TLDR
The most common injuries afflicting the athlete affect the skin and athletes are at risk of developing both benign and malignant neoplasms, and pharmacotherapeutic prevention may be effective for some of these sports-related infections.
The Incidence of Injuries in Elite Junior Figure Skaters
TLDR
Programs to improve postural alignment, flexibility, and strength, especially during the asynchronous period of bone and soft tissue development, should be instituted to prevent and reduce overuse syndromes.
