A 25-year-old female asked:
Diseases (virus, parasites, etc) you can catch from using a communal shower & sink if you have dermatitis (leg skin with minor rash) and use sandals?

Okay...: You might have a dermatitis unrelated to using a communal shower. Staph infection, strep infection, scabies, fungus, eczema, folliculitis, allergic reaction, burn, chemical sensitivity, sun burn, etc. Best thing is to see a doctor for an evaluation. Good luck.
