Post swimming in ocean

has anyone ever swam in the ocean and then felt sort of irritated down there? I went swimming On Friday and today I feel very irritated and sort of dry. I dont know if its just from the salt water, I dont have any other symptoms..does anyone else get this?

Has this ever happened before, after being in the ocean? It could be the salt water, it could be sand, it could be a few things.

I dont think it happend before, but it happend right after i went in the ocean, Atlantic, I washed off as soon as i got home a few hours after being in the water, Its starting to go away a little bit, I think it must be the salt water

Did you sit in a wet bathing suit for very long? You may have a yeast infection. If it doesnt' go away go see your doctor. If it is starting to feel better, maybe, hopefully you just got a little irritated.

Good luck!

years ago, my friend and I, including our boyfriends used to go the beach every night. Well, they made love in the water..........WOAHHHHHH, the gynecologist told here that there are many many parasitic beings in the water, that makes for a wicked infection. I try not to sit in a wet suit longer than needed, specially if its humid in your area.

Like pretty much everyone said. It could be sand, salt water, sitting in a wet swimsuit. I wouldn't worry about it. Unless its persistent.

I break out in a bad ichy rash everywhere when being exposed to the sun and sand with water for long periods of time. It sucks...
I was camping all weekend and broke out.
I am also going camping again this weekend!

Anyone else get this?
