Anybody heard of skin being sensitive to water? Seems that when i go in the shower or a swim in the beach ill come out with itchy skin lasting for about 30 mins (particularly my legs which can be quite severe) and accompanying the itch seems to be red dots on my back and neck.
If i shower or swim in the morning it seems to be much worse, and sometimes at night i dont experience it at all.
If i come out of the beach and go directly into a shower it seems to get much worse also, so its not the beach water (especially as im barely in there anyway, just something ive noticed over the years)
I've had this for about 3 years now - and doctors have no idea. Funny thing was i just came back from a trip to south africa and i didnt experience any of this at all (was the best trip of my life) but now that i have been back in australia for about a month it has just started up again. Very depressing.
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated and is anybody else going through this?
I'd love to be able to swim care free or shower without needing 20 mins recovery time everyday!
