Itchy rash hot tub

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy rash hot tub


Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn Hot tub folliculitis.
Avatar n tn 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...
Avatar n tn I have these extremley itchy red bumps on my arms, back and stomach, i went to the doctors and he said it was hot tub rash, he gave me pills to take, but it seems like they are not working, does itching them make it worse? And what are the signs they are clearing up and is it really hot tub rash?
Avatar f tn It started on his lower abdomen (bathing suit area - after sitting in a hot tub with his father and sister who have not had any idications of a rash) but it is now "crawling" up to his chest. What should we do?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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?
1794638 tn?1345155061 however i would definitely avoid hot tub with INC. Chemicals in hot water will irritate skin and may cause a rash. the telaprevir rash can be a show stopper.
Avatar m tn I am trying to figure out what has happened and what this may be. I think the culprit may have been a hot tub in a rented condo two days ago. I was in the hot tub nude and afraid this may be where these bumps originated. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. If no luck here, the next step is a dermatologist I suppose.
Avatar m tn we stayed at a cabin that had a hot tub. one of the nights we were up late hanging out and drinking beer and got ate up by mosquitoes. we boiled in the hot tub for awhile. now, 3 months later, most of the bites have long since gone away, except for 2 which will not seem to heal. They still flare up and itch, get a small scab and appear as if they are going to heal, but never really do. 1 is on my calf, the other about 2 inches above my knee.
Avatar n tn I think it might be hot tub rash (he was in one this past weekend), I just didnt know it this rash spreads b/c its getting worse. He says it doesn't itch but hurts, he describes it as a stinging.
Avatar m tn i do have a sensitivity to latex . The rash occurred before when I dipped my leggings in a public hot tub. What could it be?
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar f tn Like most so glad to hear that I am not the only person. Although it said to hear no Dr has a good answer. I've had this problem for 4 years now. I first got this when I was at New York city on a school trip i just shaved my legs got out of the tub dried them with a towel and BAM i started icing like crazy this was in MARCH. Then I was getting tanned for a school dance and it happened again and this was in February of the next year.
Avatar f tn Some days his face is very red and itchy, other days the rash is on his back. It is always present. Dad is eighty and has low level prostate cancer and joint pain. He has been prescribed Amlodipine Maleate 10mg, Penicillin VK 250 mg, and Loratadine 10mg as an antihistamine to try to calm the rash down. He does not drink or smoke and has a healthy diet and an active lifestyle. However, the rash is making him miserable and I would really appreciate some help.
Avatar n tn You can also use a barrier cream with zinc oxide paste or calamine lotion or a mild steroid cream like dermacort on the rash. If the rash is itchy,you can take some antihistaminic like benadryl or Claritin. If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Hope it helps .Take care and pls do keep us posted in case you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
Avatar m tn Okay so roughly a month and a half ago I got really bad chub rub at the beach which then got infected when I got in a hot tub. In the hot tub me and a girl had it going and insertion took place but I immediately stopped it due to no protection. Within 3 days a bad rash had appeared all around my groin area which a doctor said was hot tub folliculitis. Not thinking when in the shower I used the wash rag from my groin onto the glans. Within about 2 days after a rash had appeared on the glans.
Avatar f tn I'm 26 weeks pregnant. I work for a hotel, and as I was cleaning the towels in the pool area, the hot tub looked sooooooo good. I checked the water, on a scale of 1 to 10, it's about a 5 in heat. Did anybody use one while pregnant? I know there's a lot of things we shouldn't do that some people have done and been okay with. The tub is just warmed right now, the water heater thing is shut off.
Avatar f tn I recently swam in a pool that was not kept up very well and also had protected sex with a new man the same the day. I started to get lot of red bumps around my genitals about 2-4 days later. I'm scared they could be herpes after reading the stuff on the internet. I don't have any of them on my vagina just where i would shave around it.
Avatar m tn 6 days ago, it started with an itchy rash, about a dozen red dots on the foreskin used some over-the-counter fungus / rush cream and cleaned with alcohol and Thimerosal Tincture, after 3 days the red dots turned to black dots and dry skin but still burn when touched wonder if I could catch an infection from using a public restroom and accidentally touched the toilet seat rim or by hand transfer (though nothing on fingers)
2090601 tn?1334515062 I wear cotton camisoles instead of a bra, because bras have that ployester band, which causes me to sweat, and get an itchy rash. I wear all light cotton, and I know I look awful without the bra ( but not according to my husband), so I do also use a light button down shirt, if I'm in a crowd. Driving in the sun makes it bad for me, so you can your car fan/air-condit, and block the sunb from going on your arm. Any product with fragrance is supposed to cause the itching.
Avatar f tn Forgot to ask - would STI symptoms continue to worsen once they are felt?
Avatar f tn And does it go away with just a simple cream the rashes was small as goose bumps and itchy but only when I cratch it it becomes red and the cream take it off I notice it soon as I came out of the hot tub.
Avatar f tn Hey guys I'm 34 weeks and 2days. I have a rash all over my stomach and its really itchy. Has anyone else had this issue? If so anything I can get to put on it for relief?
1752451 tn?1313407962 Been on triple therapy for six weeks now,haven't got the rash yet but definitely itchy all over.
Avatar m tn So my husband and I both left Arizona with red hot painful lumps in our armpits and breasts as well as singular red dots around the abdomen. Thinking it may have been from a dirty hot tub? Could that be? Obviously will get it checked if it doesn't go away in a day or two, but just wondering if this has happened to anyone. Thanks.
