My Scuba diving buddy is a 33 yr white female in good health and physical condition. We were in 85F temp water for 30 min less than 40 ft. After the dive, while sitting in the water we noticed that if you ran your finger along her skin, you could actually feel the crepedis and it appeared as if bubbles were coming from her skin, (not from the surface of her skin). She had no other symptoms. This stopped 20 min after exiting the water. No one in DAN of at the nearest hyper baric facilities could tell us what it was or it's significance. The dive was done at an altitude of 6000 feet at The Homestead Crater in Mid Way Utah. Can any one help us?
