    Gee, who knew Wrestling was a Gay sport.. :nojj:

    SUNNYVALE, Calif. (KTVU) - It's been a terrifying ordeal for one South Bay family, after their star student athlete was diagnosed with a form of herpes that's left lesions on his face. They said, he contracted it after a Central Coast Section high school wrestling tournament at Independence High School in San Jose back on Feb. 19.

    The family now wants the weekend's state wrestling championships to be postponed.

    17-year-old Blake Flovin said he started getting symptoms after competing at the CCS tournament. He believes he got the skin infection from another wrestler or a wrestling mat.

    Wrestling is Flovin's passion. However, the high school senior said he'll likely never step onto a wrestling mat again after he was diagnosed with a viral skin infection.

    Common problem in the high school wrestling world. Some schools don't wash the mats often enough or cant afford the right chemicals to kill germs.

    Mat herpes is no joke. I can't believe that they still force kids to wear singlets and leotards in wrestling and gymnastics. There are way too many incurable communicable diseases that can spread. Fungus,herpes,HPV,MRSA!!!

    In between herpes outbreaks, the virus lies dormant (as if it is hibernating or sleeping) in nerve cells. Exposure to HSV-1 is extremely common, as many as 90% of American adults have been exposed to the virus, and there is no stigma to having a cold sore. However, HSV-2, or genital herpes, can cause embarrassment.

    About 80% of American adults have oral herpes

    does he claim to have genital herpes on his face?

    Condoms with Beth all the time, and Howard excused it as not wanting children nor a vasectomy.

    You're exposed all the time to vile shit in wrestling/BJJ/MMA.

    Immediately shower after being on the mat.

    We never washed the mats. When practice was over, we rolled them up wet. The only time they got cleaned was right before a match. After the match? Yep, rolled up wet. I lost count on how many times I had Impetigo back in high school.

    I don't know how much longer this sport can go on unless they take more precaution. Staff infections, herpes......Have to start putting these guys in body suits. Thank God I'm clean.:pray:



    Oh, and call a wrestler gay to their face. :fil:
