To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
The results of a study comparing 75% isopropyl alcohol based body wipes versus soap/water based body wipes are now available in a report from BJ Anderson MD.
Conclusion: "The use of skin wipes help to reduce skin infections in high school wrestlers when used at tournaments after each match. Soap/H2O cleansing wipes show statistically significant reduction in these infections. More studies need to be performed to see if 75% IPA wipes will be as efficacious."
