Wrestlers Rash

Wrestler's Rash is a skin infection transmissible by skin-to-skin contact of a herpes virus. Symptoms can include pain-filled blisters, fever, sore throat, and headache.

Those involved in hand to hand sports (wrestling, rugby) are much more likely to get infected. Maintaining good hygiene can prevent infection.
