A form of friction burn due to abrasion of the skin on the grass. Grass burns are notorious for the ease with which they can become infected. Special care has to be taken when the grass has been treated with chemicals which may cause toxic reactions. This applies, for example, to cricket pitches which are often heavily treated.
