It may be you have left-over effects of another type of water-spurred allergy.




Or it may be some odd allergic reaction to pollen stimulated by temperature changes and pressure...

I have developed an odd, recurring rash that only appears after prolonged exposure to water in NY state. It appears predominately on my ventral skin surfaces but also appears anywhere pressure is applied. In reading about the three common causes: seaweed, larvae from infected birds/snails, and tiny jellyfish, my symptoms seem to match most closely to the jellyfish. It most often plagues me when I venture into cold salt water -specifically Long Beach on Long Island. I have also had other occurrences when swimming in a freshwater outdoor pool and to a mutch reduced extent in FL. Even, when taking a shower at home in NYC!

My original thought was it was caused by detergent, then by pollen. If others have such occurrences specifically near NYC, I would be interested to hear of it as it could conceivably be toxins of a man-made sort in the air or water and I may be a kind of canary in a coal mine.

The unique thing about my reaction is it happens within minutes of exiting the water as I begin to dry and after intense burning with little red spots becoming pimples and then puffy often connected blisters, fades away after a few hours. This is unlike mosty of the descriptions I have seen of the 'standard' causes of rashes as they are said to last days even weeks, from what I can grok. HTH.

The saddest part is I love to swim!

Is swimming a contact sport?

Technically you're not supposed to come into contact with people but no matter how hard you try someone always gets hit or you yourself is getting hit. I have seen on multiple occasions bloody nosed which were the product of getting hit in the face by some swimmer in the other lane. Also I have seen during relays when someone dives off the block sometimes they kick the swimmer before them in the head. I have also given girls headaches before because when I am swimming down my lane a lot of the time I hit someone in the head...hard. (Maybe it was an accident maybe it wasn't) So I think that swimming was never meant to be a contact sport but has definitely turned into one.
