Some places my face aren't meant for...

Some people come to the dojo that might not have the best hygiene, or their feet are crusty, dry and look as if they have a severe case of athletes foot. Some people sweat alot and upon being uke and pinned, their heads leave a large pool of sweat.

So, what is my primary concern as uke? my health and well-being? No way. Its where is my face going to land and how long it will be there while nage tries to get the pin right. I try at all costs to avoid sweat and foot crust, because I'm not looking for athletes foot of the face.

What is one to do? Does anyone else worry about this? I'd like to concentrate more on aikido.
