I have a werid, sharp sensation on my skin. I kind of feels like tiny sharp particles. It happens all over my body, most notebly my chest, arms near the elbow, and back of legs. It itches only a little. It started after a visit to the local gym. It went like this:
1. Went to hot tub.
2. Left to outdoor pool.
3. Left and went into hot tub. I hopped in pretty quick and I was kind of cold.
This is where a sharp pain on my legs took place soon after I got in. I stayed in for a short time and then got out and went to the steam room for 10 min.
4. Left the gym.
I have been to this gym before and I have used the hot tub and steam room before, but never the pool. My fiancee went too and she has been to the pool before and was in the pool with me and in the hot tub, though not as long as I was and she does not have any symptoms. Any ideas?
