I just wanted to update you on my son's rash that I suspect is from the hot tub. He is still itchy, but the rash itself is not as apparent. I have continued to give him regular Benadryl, but think that perhaps I should change to Claritin as it is non-drowsy. How long should I expect this to last if it is related to the hot tub? Would you recommend using a moisturizer? I did get him some topical analgesic spray for itching that can be used 1-3 x a day, but it offers short term relief at best.
My husband has been having issues with a skin rash ever since we opened a new hot tub 3 months ago. When we first opened it up the temp was set around 102 and he used it for about 5 days in a row and broke out in a red, itchy rash all over his body. We started at the family dr and got an antibiotic which did nothing, and when it got even worse -went to the ER. Dr there told us it was a bromine allergy and gave him meds for that. We dumped and refilled the tub twice and changed to chlorine...
No spots have appeared, and I know the bromine floater was full, along with a loose bromine puck in the tub. We also had put Jazz in it, etc. Is it possible to get hot tub rash minutes after climing out? thanks!
Has anyone suffered from rashes after spending time at the Spa in Mandalay Bay during the week of February 26- March 1, 2013? I am covered in a severe itchy, weeping rash that I contacted at Mandalay Bay but they insist their PH levels were at the recommended levels during that time and will do nothing to compensate me for my suffering or more importantly, make sure that the levels are safe for public safety.
There is now way this can be an STD as I have been separated for several month and have not slept with anyone, but after using a private hot tub for a week or so I developed a bad case of "jock itch." However, it is different in that it itches everywhere (penis, scrotum, as well as the joint area of you legs where "jock itch" normally occurs). There is no visible rash or redness, it is much stronger than jock itch (very, very itchy.
I have a pretty bad case of Hot Tub Folliculitis after going in my parents' spa. It is pretty unsightly & I have bumps covering my flanks, abdomen, underwear line, and buttocks with some spotting on thighs. I am actually not too itchy or uncomfortable. I know it usually clears up on its own, but I've heard antibiotics are prescribed for more severe cases. I'd consider mine pretty bad, but again, I'm not too uncomfortable. Should I wait it out?
Need some help...Have any of you ever heard of something called "hot tub rash"? We went away for the weekend, and my husband and 2 kids spent all of their time in the hot tub/pool. They all have this strange rash all over their bodies...I took my daughter to the DR. b/c I was afraid it was bedbugs from the hotel. The doc said it was folliculitis from the hot tub. What in the world???? Has anyone experienced this, and how long till it goes away? thanks...
In the past 6 months, every time I sit in a tub of hot water, immediately after getting out my feet and lets become red, itchy, burning prickly. I take a benadry and it goes away in 30 min. or so. I think it is related to the hot water not soap, shampoo, or any thing like that. What is going on?

3 weeks ago I went to a cottage that had a hot tub. I dont remember the chemicals we put except for Bromine tablets sticks to mind. Anyways, I was going in the hot tub for 4 days, every day my legs started getting itchier and itchier, I was dumb not to think of the correlation to the hot tub, I assumed it was poison ivy. Anyways basically my entire right leg from the knee down had these little raised puffs of skin with large areas of red around it, it was insanely itchy.
I am a 36 year old man. I have an itchy red rash in both armpits. Not covering the whole armpit. In both armpits the rash is localized where the chest meets the armpit hair in the front. I do not shave or wax. The rash formed 6 days ago. It occured after tanning. I tan once a week in this same stand up booth. I hold my arms up the whole time. I have never had this problem before. On this day the tanning room was extra hot.
I am experiencing a similar issue. I noticed a rash breaking out on my hand yesterday, it stings a bit and is very itchy, there are now dark blue almost black bruises within this rash and my hand is swelling. It is so weird, I work in a hospital and nobody had any idea as to what it was.
I also agree that hot water causes it to flare up. B4 TX I went in my hot tub all the time and it helps my joint pain. Now I have tried to go in it right after it was cleaned without any chemicals and it still causes problems. I have also found that if anything rubs my skin it will flare it. I finally did go to a dermatologist and got an ointment that doesn't seem to do much. I use a lot of lotion and try to drink lot's of fluids. It used to be just on my arms and hands but now it is all over.
My doctor told me I had mushrooms. I have had a very itchy rash on my inner thighs and my insides of my arms. Can you tell me exactly what mushrooms is what causes this and is it contagious?
I have a similar ithcy problem. It started in October. The itch started on the inside of my thighs but it felt like it was very deep in my leg, not on the surface. I scratch until there's no skin left. The itch has spread all over except my head. When the dermatologist found I have a hot tub, he said it was "hot tub foliculitis". He's wrong. There is no rash. I just scrath until I have destroyed the skin and it hurts instead of itches.
I have the same issues as everyone else. Itchy, swollen lips with a rash often accompanied by swollen eyes. I visited the dermatologist twice this week. The first time, he thought it was a peanut allergy, so I was put on anithistimines; however, while on antihistimines I developed swollen eyes and lips! Upon visiting the doctor again, I was prescribed a topical ointment for the lip area. The doc said that this condition is tricky to diagnose.
Pls get allergy tests like skin ***** tests or blood tests like RAST done to find out if you are allergic to something. You could consider such things as a staph or strep infection that frequently causes a rash or itchy skin as well. Or perhaps you have come in contact with a poison or have a bacterial or fungal infection. Other conditions cause itchy skin as well.
For some time now, I have been having itchy legs..whether I shave or wait a few days. It does not matter..I have used soap & shaving gel...I use Venus razor which i think is one of the best around. I have it real bad at night when i go to bed...my legs are a mess right now... Do you have any suggestion as to why? or what i can do different?

I started getting a rash from my hot tub suddenly, and if I do not go in the tub the rash goes away, however my nipples get very itchy and have white pimples on them. This comes and goes now, so I try to avoid the hot tub because it seems to make it worse. No dryness or scaling. I doubt its ecszema.
Hi girls, I'm a 55 year old bloke from London, UK, got the itchy lower legs this year, It gets very itchy in a hot bath, I can scratch like mad, but try to avoid doing so, I have asthma and take steroids (prednisolone), and thought this was causing it, but I see from the discussions all types of healthy people get it - it seems to be brought on or relieved by heat - which brings the blood to the surface - might be a dietary symptom, like too much sugar - I shall have to experiment and get back,
I would watch out with the alcohol in the tub. I used to get some relief with rubbing alcohol on my skin when I get itchy till my doctor said that makes the itching worse because rubbing alcohol can make your skin 10 times drier. Would the alcohol not make your privates dry and itchy?
Have you used a hot tub--sometimes those can spread infections which look like what you describe. They go away on their own. Of course, these may also be bacterial folliculitis, or maybe you were attacked by a swarm of bugs. See a doc. Thanks. Dr.
She has recently been complaining of itchy feet at night and telling me that it hurts. No visible rash, athletes foot, cracks or anything to give me an indication of what the problem could be. She doesn't care for socks and I recently assumed it was because her feet would sweat and it was uncomfortable for her so I didn't push it too much unless we were out and about.
When I was on treatment my doctor proscribed a steroid cream (triamcinolone 0.1%). It cleared my riba rash up completely.
Hi, I am a 41 year old female and have suffered with incredibly itchy legs for about 14 years. My legs are a mess, full of scars from scratching till I bleed and then reopening scabs by scratching them over and over. My doc has sent me to see a dermatologist about twice but they were no help. I have tried...
I used monistat 1 to get rid of a yeast infection 2 months ago.... and the yeast is now gone apparentally... but i have this horrible burning almost itchy feelling in the whole area. It doesn't hurt to have sex or to touch... its just a sensation as you said that gets worse as the day goes on!!
Now 2 weeks off of tx I'm still a bit itchy with a rash on my temples. However with the weather cooling down the hot tub is looking attractive again. No way I could have done it but maybe it will be OK for you. Depends, not everyone gets the VX rash or reacts to Ribavirin the same way.
